About 50 Air Force reservists and three C-130 cargo planes from Peterson Air Force Base are headed for Iraq.
Air crews and maintenance teams from the 302nd Airlift Wing will depart Wednesday from the base in Colorado Springs.
It's the third deployment to Iraq or Afghanistan for Peterson reservists. Previous deployments were in 2005 and 2008.
