The US Air Force has had a long history of aerial applications of pesticides to fulfill a variety of missions, the most important being the protection of troops through the minimization of arthropod vectors capable of disease transmission. Beginning in World War II, aerial application of pesticides by the military has effectively controlled vector and nuisance pest populations in a variety of environments.
The Air Force Aerial Spray Unit (AFASU) traces its history back to early aerial applications of DDT during the later stages of World War II. After the end of the war, the Special DDT Flight was created in 1946, but was soon transformed to the Special Aerial Spray Flight (SASF) in 1947 when the Air Force became a separate armed service.6 Eventually, as US military operations in Vietnam were reduced in the early 1970s, active duty Air Force assets were moved to reserve status, including spray planes returning from Operation Ranch Hand defoliation flights in Vietnam.7 After more than 25 years at Langley Air Force Base, Virginia, the SASF was transferred from the active Air Force to the Air Force Reserve in 1973.
As mentioned earlier, a modular aerial spray system (MASS) was developed for use with the C-130H airplane. The MASS, which has a maximum 2,000gallon capacity for liquid materials, can be rolled on or off the airplane in approximately Table 1. Nonmilitary emergency deployments by the one-half hour. Functional in a variety of AFASU after transition to the US Air Force Reserve. configurations, the MASS is useful for such Year Location Health Threat Coverage applications as ultra low volume adult (acres) mosquito sprays (adulticiding), mosquito liquid larvicide sprays, herbicide applications, 1973 Panama Equine encephalitis 37,600 and oil dispersants for emergency cleanup of 1975 Guam Dengue fever 157,530 oil spills.

Ultra low volume sprays create an aerosol cloud of small discrete droplets that drift through the air. This type of application is 1987 Puerto Rico Dengue fever 177,000 referred to as a space spray since the goal is to 1989 South Carolina Hurricane Hugo 855,500 drift droplets through a particular space mosquito control resulting in contact with flying insects.5 For 1992 Florida Hurricane Andrew 279,170 this reason, the flight period of the target pests mosquito control is one of the most important planning factors 1999 North Carolina, Hurricane Floyd 1,700,000 for missions using the ultra low volume Virginia mosquito control configuration to control mosquitoes and nuisance flies.8 Current methodologies for 2005 Louisiana, Hurricanes Katrina and 2,880,000 Texas Rita mosquito control AFASU mosquito adulticiding use the MASS with booms placed through the fuselage doors. Those booms are fitted with flat fan nozzles The AFASU trains for a primary wartime mission of positioned perpendicular to the slipstream of the protecting deployed troops from arthropod-borne aircraft for maximum shear and atomization of the illness by participating in ongoing mosquito control sprayed liquid.

LOL indeed.
