Starting on 11 December 1988, two C-141s flew with relief supplies to the city of Yerevan, Armenia, after a huge earthquake on 7 December killed more than 40,000 people and left another 500,000 homeless. A C-5 also carried supplies to Incirlik AB, Turkey. Over a further 20 missions throughout December, MAC delivered 572 tons of rescue equipment, blankets, tents, and medical supplies. For the first time, US aircraft flew directly to the Soviet Union without Soviet personnel on board as observers

On 24 November 1964, five USAF C-130s dropped 350 paratroops of the Belgian Army Para-Commando Regiment onto Simi-Simi Airport on the outskirts of Stanleyville (now Kisangani) in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Designated Operation RED DRAGON (DRAGON ROUGE), the operation was in response to unrest in the Congo and breakdown of negotiations surrounding the mostly European population in the town that had been taken hostage by communist-backed rebels. Once the paratroopers had secured the airfield, they made their way to the town's Victoria Hotel to recover the hostages and evacuate them via the airfield. Over the four day period, 1700 refugees were airlifted by the USAF to safety
