A little explanation from TYWKIWDBI about why relief planes are being turned away from the Haiti airport Read that again: 600+ take offs and landings daily at a strip that usually has 3, with no control tower and only radio (no radar or computers) on the ground and hardly any room to put those planes when they get there. Any idea how big a C-130 or a C-17 is?

They are doing the best they can folks. As now that they have secured areas for supply drops (needed so as many people can get as many supplies as possible with as few injuries, lootings, and deaths as possible) the Air Force has started dropping water and food in Haiti along with the what is already coming in on relief planes.
