After more than nine months of work and $12 million in funding, a U.S. Air Force C-130 Hercules became the first aircraft to utilize a new apron at Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti (CLDJ), Dec. 22, marking the beginning of operational missions on the apron known as 'Enduring Ramp'.
"Initially, Camp Lemonnier was built as an expeditionary base with expeditionary hardware," said Lt. j.g. John Woods, the air operations officer at CLDJ.
