Hurricane Katrina Evacuee on evacuation flight from New Orleans.
NEW ORLEANS, LA - September 4, 2005: Evacuees from New Orleans were being flown to the city's airport via helicopter and unloaded on the tarmac. Unloaded on the tarmac in a scene similar to that of a war zone evacuation, they were then hustled from the helicopter onto waiting cargo carts ( normally used to move luggage) and rushed amid a throng of volunteers and into the airport where they received medical attention. Shortly after entering the airport, evacuees were screened and divided nto groups of 50 and told to go to a certain boarding gate. Evacuees only find out the destination of the flight, and their new temporary home, after boarding the flight. (Photo by Todd Bigelow/Aurora)..Chaney family is flown to West Palm, Beach, Florida.
