US Air Force fire department crews assigned to safeguard Mogadishu Airport refill their P-19 Fire Truck from a P-18 2000 gallon tanker. The tanker is left facing the camera and the fire truck is right facing away from the camera. Fire crews from McChord, Travis, and Charleston Air Force Bases responded to the scene of an Italian helicopter accident (not shown) and foamed the area around the helicopter where fuel has leaked from it. The runway was closed for approximately three hours. This mission is in direct support of Operation Restore Hope

U.S. National Archives

The objects in this collection are from The U.S. National Archives. The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) was established in 1934 by President Franklin Roosevelt. NARA keeps those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.

Disclaimer: A work of the U.S. National Archives is "a work prepared by an officer or employee" of the federal government "as part of that person's official duties." In general, under section 105 of the Copyright Act, such works are not entitled to domestic copyright protection under U.S. law and are therefore in the public domain.
