I think it's a reincarnation of Southern Air Transport and is based at Rickenbacker in Columbus.

Yes Southern Air Transport is a Charter Cargo Carrier. They like Evergreen, Kalitta Air, and others. They're frequently in and out of US military bases bringing cargo and supplies to the forces in Iraq.
Made from jets!
