James and Carolyn Bouchard, Heros of Bravo Team Flight!

Sunday night's flight was put together by James and Carolyn Bouchard, CEO of Esmark, a steel and oil production company.

PORT AU PRINCE, Haiti - A 79-member medical team from Pittsburgh and beyond arrived here Sunday night with 30,000 tons of medical supplies in a race against time, sickness and decay in this earthquake-stricken city.

The return flight carried 80 more orphans, children released at the last minute to fly to Florida and, from there, to families waiting across the United States.

"We did it," beamed James Bouchard, the Pittsburgh businessman who co-sponsored last night's mercy flight. At first, he had expected to return only with exhausted relief workers after the Haitian government balked at any further release of orphans.
