Operations
Wing Aircraft Rotation Plan
Source: Capt Jerry Eichelberger email Sun 03 Dec 2013 8:39 PM, per
direction
On December 3, 2013 the State wide aircraft rotation plan was instituted.
PUPOSE OF OPERATIONS
To facilitate the relocation of aircraft between the MSWG Squadrons, in order to increase
the number of hours flown annually.
MISSION OPERATION PLAN
By providing aircraft to all squadrons on a regular basis, we will have more utilization of
CAP aircraft assets to maintain aircraft/pilot proficiency and to enable more hours to be
flown per year, as well as increase our operational coverage throughout the state.
Aircraft relocation between the various squadrons shall be the responsibility of each
squadron commander where an aircraft is currently located. Said commander will
coordinate with the receiving squadron commander of the next rotation location to work
out a transportation schedule. Detailed plans to move the aircraft to the next rotation
location and to get the flight crews relocated will be coordinated in advance. In addition,
the squadron commander receiving the aircraft will notify the OPERATIONS staff that
the aircraft has been received by email. This will ensure that all Check Pilots, the wing
aircraft maintenance officer, the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations and the director of
Emergency Services know the current location of every aircraft.

Sundown Patrol
.
Copy of 14 Aug 2013 email from Capt Nate Crawford SQ/CC MS-048 to Wing Historian
I have attached our SPecial INstructions (SPINs) for Sundown Patrol which overviews
the scope of the mission. Last Sunday Lt Col Hodges, Lt Henry, and Lt Col Warner
spotted a submerged bridge from a sunken vessel that was a hazard to marine traffic. It
was later confirmed by USCG and distributed to boaters. Let me know if you have any
more questions.
Capt Crawford
Abbreviated/tweaked copy of
Revision 1- 10 April 2013
Civil Air Patrol
Sundown Patrol (Harrison and Hancock Counties)
Scope and Operational Procedures
For 2013 Season
The Mississippi Wing of the Civil Air Patrol is funded by the Bureau of Marine
Resources to conduct an aerial patrol of the Mississippi shoreline, the offshore islands,
and the water in-between. Coordination during the patrol will be done with “Coast Guard
Station Pascagoula or Gulfport”. This flying activity known as the “Sundown Patrol”
will be provided beginning about 2 ½ hours before sundown on Saturday and Sunday of
each week and on holidays during the period from min-April until November.
Usable aircraft N960CP at Gulfport (GPT), N9310X at Pascagoula (PQL) and N925CP at
Stennis International (HSA) are equipped with life rafts and Personal Flotation Devices
(PFD’s) for overwater flight. In the case of a mechanical or scheduling problem an
alternate corporate (CAP) or other aircraft may be secured and properly outfitted with
over water flight gear.
Mission Pilots are expected to be night current (VFR) in case you have to stay out beyond
dark.
The Sundown Patrol is authorized by Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between
the two coastal counties (Hancock and Harrison) and CAP National/Mississippi Wing
headquarters. It is flown by CAP/FAA qualified aircrews consisting of pilot and
observer(s) or scanner using a C14 Mission symbol. The primary purpose of the
Sundown Patrol is to locate and identify water craft or people that may be
experiencing difficulty on or around the offshore islands and the coastal waters of
Mississippi and relay that information to the Coast Guard.

13

When a craft or person is spotted, the pilot will maneuver his aircraft to determine if the
target is in need of assistance. If it is determined that a vessel is in distress, the crew will
note the position and time and contact the U.S. Coast Guard on a marine channel and
provide the coastguard with information to get to the target in distress. At other times the
Coast Guard may have received a Mayday from a vessel in our patrol area and will
request the CAP aircraft to locate this vessel and stay on station until they arrive. The
aircrew is expected to orbit the vessel until the U.S. Coast Guard has arrived at the vessel.
Although the CAP fixed wing aircraft is limited in its ability to assist in the actual rescue,
its presence has provided comfort to many a stranded seaman while they wait for rescue.
The following information is contained in this publication
1. Sundown Patrol Flight Procedures
2. Aircraft Communications Procedures with the Coast Guard
3. Flight Information
1. Aircrew will secure a flight release during which fuel management will be a
mandatory item of discussion. Obtain, from Flight Service or other official source,
weather and latest Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFR’s) and Notices to Airmen
(NOTAM’s), and arrive at the airport early enough to conduct pre-flight, establish contact
with Coast Guard operations, and allow 2 ½ to 3 hours flight time before dark. Plan
flights to conclude shortly after sundown since this period is when boaters are trying to
reach shore.
Scheduled crewmembers are expected to complete the assigned mission or find a
qualified replacement and notify the Sundown Patrol Coordinator in your unit or
(Lt. Col James Wiley – MS Wing Director of Safety). In an effort to ensure flights
will be conducted as scheduled, the Sundown Coordinator will send, via Email, a
reminder to scheduled crewmembers a few days prior to their flight. The Pilot in
Charge (PIC) will, as soon as practical, confirm with the other crewmember(s) the
flight and reporting time.
A schedule has been established thru 26 Oct: Each squadron has primary
scheduling responsibility on their weekend. If the Squadron Sundown Patrol
Coordinator needs or desires additional personnel outside their unit, they may
contact any of the other coordinators for assistance of contact Lt Col Wiley. The
schedule is attached as appendix A.

Squadron Sundown Patrol Coordinators are:
Col Berta Edge Squadron – Darrin Stewart
Diamondhead Squadron – Tim Kleppner
Singing River Squadron – Gary Turner
MS Wing personnel – James Wiley

14

2. Gulfport and Mobile Approach Controls are available to you. Gulfport Approach can
provide flight following over much of the route and can give clearance to enter Keesler
and Gulfport class D airspace; close coordination will be needed flying the shoreline
south of these airports. There are several other advantages to using approach control:
they can help you avoid weather, alert you to deteriorating conditions, and will be
available to you if you have trouble in flight. You also have ASOS, AWOS, flight
service, flight watch and ATIS weather resources available to you.
3. Prior to departure, contact the Coast Guard by phone at XXX-XXX-XXXX –
Pascagoula, XXX-XXX-XXXX – Gulfport or XXX-XXX-XXX – Mobile, AL and
inform them that you will be flying Sundown Patrol and you will call them on the radio
when airborne. They will give you radio channels and any special instructions.
4. The PIC will insure that all personnel are wearing an approved life vest during the
flight. One person will be assigned to the life raft and will make sure, in case of ditching,
that the raft gets outside of the plane and properly deployed. The left pilot’s seat must be
occupied by a CAP qualified pilot unless the right seat pilot’s seat is occupied by a CAP
qualified IP or check pilot. The PIC must be a SAR/DR-Mission pilot. When weight and
balance allows please add a Scanner in the rear left seat.
5. Upon departure from the airport the crew will contact the Coast Guard on the assigned
marine frequency. The Coast Guard my request 15 or 30-minute reports (Ops Normal
Report) of position (lat/long) and condition of operations (operations normal or other).
Normally we will be asked to talk with them on either Channel XX or YY (Coast Guard
Frequencies). The common talk channel on Coast Guard is Channel ZZ, but we would
only rarely use it.
Radio Contact with the Coast Guard should be as follows:
A. Initial airborne contact (climbing to altitude and position)
1. Coast Guard station Pascagoula, this is CAPFLIGHT XXXX on channel XX.
2. CG reply
3. CAPFLIGHT XXXX has departed Trent Lott Airport on Sundown Patrol. Have 2
persons on board (POB), and would like for you to “Guard this Aircraft”.
4. CG reply: Roger, we assume Guard of your aircraft at time XXXX/ Please provide
“Ops Normal Reports” every XX minutes.
5. CAPFLIGHT XXXX, will report at XX minute intervals.

15

C. Ending Sundown Patrol
1. Call Coast Guard when approaching home field and indicate you are about to land and
you want to terminate Sundown Patrol and your guard. (This is important!)
2. Coast Guard will close your guard at time XXXX.
3. CAPFLIGHT XXXX out.
Reminders
1. Talk normally (no special radio lingo needed).
2. Give clear and concise reports.
3. Keep it short and sweet.
CAP Communications: Communications with the Local CAP operators (Gulfport/Biloxi)
is on channel #RXX (Biloxi Repeater) on the FM radio.
6. Route of flight: A suggested Sundown Patrol (SDP) route is depicted on the last page
of these procedures. The aircrew may modify the circuit for weather avoidance, entry
logistics or pilot preferences. The circuit is intended to be flown in a counter clockwise
direction so the observer is looking out the aircraft’s right side toward the shore of
mainland and islands. The aircraft should be flown abut ½ mile offshore to give the
observer a good opportunity to search the beach and near-shore water along the mainland
and on both sides of the islands. SDP missions will generally be flown out of Trent Lott,
Gulfport, or Stennis. After leaving the traffic pattern fly, at a safe altitude, to join the
SDP circuit. The circuit is to be flown at 1000 ft MSL. Proceed first westerly along the
mainland. Upon reaching the Louisiana State line reverse course and proceed easterly
patrolling the Mississippi Sound and the barrier islands (note the loop, which begins and
ends at the western end of Ship Island, to be flown out toward Chandeleur Island as far
south as the Mississippi/Louisiana state line). Upon reaching the Jackson (AL) county
line (near Ocean Springs airport) fly north to the mainland then westerly to where the
circuit was started. Return to base to complete the mission. Normal flight time will be
approx. 2.0 hours unless you are involved in a rescue or identification operation. Report
unusual or emergency marine activity to the Coast Guard. Anytime during your patrol
the Coast Guard may request you to check out a certain area. We’ll assist if we can
perform IAW FAA and CAP regulations. Remember though, that we are restricted from
some type missions under “Posse Comitatus”. DO NOT FLY MORE THAN 25 MILES
FROM ANY SHORE LINE. After rendering assistance return to your normal patrol
pattern. Keep the CAP flight release officer updated on your operations if they are going
to exceed 2.5 hours. A special emphasis item during these long Sundown Patrol missions
must be attention to fuel remaining keeping in mind the minimum fuel requirement per
CAPR 60-1. [One hour fuel remaining at landing]
ASSIST THE COAST GUARD BUT DO NOT INTERFERE IN THEIR
OPERATIONS. WE MUST ACCEPT OUR LIMITATIONS. DO NOT ENDANGER
YOURSELF OR YOUR AIRCREW BY EXCEEDING THEM.
7. Secure the aircraft and complete all flight logs as required. Log SDP results in the
remarks section of the aircraft log. Notify the flight release officer of your return.

16

8. THE AIRCREW SHOULD BE KNOWLEDGABLE IN AND FOLLOW THE
FOLLOWING PUBLICATIONS:
A. 14 CFR part 91

Enjoy Your Flight & Fly Safely
Section 9, Important phone numbers and SDP Flight Release Officers, is omitted.
Water Ditching. Taken from FAR/AIM A-322
NEVER ditch into the face of a swell. Whenever possible land on top or the back side of
a swell. Sometimes landing parallel to a swell is unavoidable due to two converging
swell systems. If this is the case make sure you land parallel to the smaller system and
onto the top or back of the larger.
Whenever possible use power when ditching over water.
Why would you ditch if you still have power? Poor fuel management would be a good
reason. [Snip]
Slow to about 10 knots above a stall and fly just above the water until a suitable smooth
area is available. Cut power at an appropriate distance to ensure a full stall over the area.
The best technique would be to have the tail touch first and then have the Fuselage
SLAM into the surf. This will help prevent a dreaded flip and a bailout with the plane
upside down.
If no power is available then a higher than normal approach speed is necessary. This will
allow for the pilot to feel out the swells and have more control over the plane when
he/she goes in.
A high wing aircraft has a tendency to be laterally unstable in a crosswind and roll to the
side after ditching.
Proper technique for evacuation is for the co-pilot to have the seat in the aft position.
Prior to touchdown position the life raft to where it is in a handy position. If possible get
rid of everything not tied down prior to ditching; it’s going to the bottom anyway. Open
cabin doors and allow pressure equalization after landing, and tighten your Buoyancy
Control Device.
The pilot will exit out the co-pilot door and the rear passengers will exit out the pilot side
of the aircraft.

Hattiesburg Cadets Visited
by Tuskegee Airman
Sources: email from Capt Al Shiyou (MS-072) dated 19 Nov 2013
and http://oldfirehousewiggins.org/tag/stone-high-school/ [Edited]
On Monday, November 18, 2013, the Cadets of MS-072 were privileged to have a
Tuskegee Airman speak to them. Dr. Jones spoke about his time serving in the United
States Army and then opened the floor for questions.

He told how the perception in the military was that people of color did not have the
brains to fly planes. Yet, they proved that they did. He shared with the Cadets how he
was treated with respect and courtesy in the military. Yet, when he left the base he was
not treated as nicely.
Dr. Needham Jones, 94 years old, belonged to the famous Tuskegee Airmen. While a
student at Alcorn A&M College, [in Mississippi] he was called up in the draft just six
weeks after the bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941. He was allowed to
complete the spring semester as a member of the reserves and reported to the Air Corps at
Camp Shelby, MS on September 7, 1942. After eight days of testing, he was sent with
the 30 highest scoring [members] to [Maxwell Army Air Field at Montgomery, AL and
from there to] Tuskegee, AL, and [he] became a member of the 99th Pursuit Squadron.

26

Dr. Jones spent many years in education in Stone County [MS] serving as Principal at
Locker High School [Wiggins] and then as Assistant Principal at Stone High [Wiggins].
Through Dr. Jones efforts, many young people stayed in school to complete their high
school education.

Recruitment & Retention
The Vicksburg Flight has a very successful and robust community outreach program.
This program has built a working relationship with city officials, county officials,
schools, and local business owners. As a result, 5 new Cadets and 4 new Senior Members
are either full members or pending national review have joined. As a result of this
growth, the Vicksburg Flight has in its possession a Civil Air Patrol Van.
Part of the community outreach program was the acquisition of a permanent facility.
Starting on 5 August 2013 and culminating on 3 September 2013, the Vicksburg Flight
acquired a facility for their own use after working with the City of Vicksburg to finalize
all legal obligations. The unit also supported Southern Heritage Air Foundation and the
Warrior Bonfire Project with a dinner fundraiser by assisting with serving food and
helping to bus tables. The unit also assists with Southern Heritage Air Foundation at their
monthly lunches. The unit has talked with and made presentations to the Warren County
Emergency Management Agency, City of Vicksburg Fire Department, Army J.R.O.T.C.
unit at Vicksburg High School, Navy J.R.O.T.C. unit at Warren Central High School, St.
Aloysius High School, and Porters Chapel Academy.
To keep the unit at a retention rate of 100%, the unit on average has 6 unit activities a
month. These activities include Cadet meetings, SM meetings, Saturday training days,
and various special activities. Planning is based around membership input.
Finance
Currently the Vicksburg Flight has two approved fundraising projects. First is a
fundraising folder that contains information about the unit, all of Civil Air Patrol’s
missions, and the budget. Second fundraiser is a collection jars present at all functions for
pocket change donations. Both fundraisers are in support of the Cadet Program and have
yielded positive returns.
Unit Major Events
The Vicksburg Flight has had an extremely successful Cadet Promotion Ceremony that
was attended by local dignitaries and Mississippi Wing command. The unit is also in the
process of finalizing all arrangements for their first open house and Christmas party. At
present the Mayor of Vicksburg with his staff are confirmed to participate in the official
opening ceremony.
Mississippi Wing Presence
The members of the Vicksburg Flight have also taken time to help show support and
attend the Mississippi Wing events. This includes the 2013 Mississippi Wing Legislative
Day, 2013 Alabama/Mississippi Joint Wing Encampment, a presence at all Staff
Meetings, Commander's Call, and CAC Meetings, 2013 Commander's Retreat, 2013

31

the Mississippi Wing Yeager Road-Show.
Future Plans
The unit will be present at Search and Rescue Exercises, with the intent of hosting one.
Discussions are underway on hopefully setting up a communications repeater for the
Vicksburg area. Work is underway in planning a communications training day. The unit
will also be coordinating plans on staffing the local air show. The unit also is planning
quarterly FAASTeam Safety Seminars. The unit is planning to release quarterly
newsletters starting next year. The unit will also be sending Cadets to encampment,
forming a color guard, honor guard, and drill team. Also, plans are underway to
participate in the Cyber Patriot Program and work in the Robotics arena of Civil Air
Patrol’s AE Mission.

MS-044 Mockingbird Composite Squadron returns Unit Banner
Email Dated 07 December 2013 from Wing Commander.
Ladies and Gentlemen of the Mississippi Wing:
Today contained a poignant moment, as one of our squadrons returned their unit banner
having closed their doors for the last time. The Mockingbird Composite Squadron (SERMS-044) based in Columbia MS was under the Command of Maj Anne Conerly, and
before that LT COL Charlie Conerly. Together they ran the unit for over twenty years.
MS-044 was awarded the national AEX award ten years in a row; unit of the year in
1997, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2006; and received the squadron of merit in 2001, 2002,
2004 and 2007. Together Charlie and Ann oversaw hundreds of cadets through the cadet
program, obtaining several hundred various achievements. Under their leadership MS044 was also extremely active in CAP’s Emergency Services mission, participating in
numerous actual search and rescue missions and countless training exercises.
The Mississippi Wing, Civil Air Patrol and this nation owes Charlie and Ann a debt of
gratitude for their tireless dedication and selfless service. We wish them both well in their
next chapter of their CAP service, and will forever look back on MS-044 with fond
memories.
Thank you both!
Semper Vigilans.
Mal.
