Cadets save Rap star
QUEENS, N.Y. -- Civil Air Patrol cadets oll duty at
a recruiting booth during the Annual Queens Festival
here did not expect to be rescuing anyone. Yet, as it
happens, they did. And the person they rescued is a
world-famous singer.
Cadets assigned to work the recruiting booth were
pleased that while on duty they could hear a nearby "Rap
Music" concert sponsored by a local radio station.
Following the performance, Rap singing star, "L. L.
Cool J.," was attempting to leave when he was mobbed
by fans. As the performer went by the Civil Air Patrol
booth, the people following walked through the booth
nearly knocking it down.
Police officers on scene tried to hold back the fans and
Cadets Marion I,eer, Anthony DePaola, George Isaacs,
Kendrick Molina and Kevin Ruiz rushed to help.
Cadets got "L. L. Cool d.," and his body guard into the
nearby Civil Air Patrol van and Cadets Leer and Ruiz
jumped in and locked the doors.
The crowd surrounded the van and began knocking on
its windows and sides. The performer asked Capt. Peter
Koch, also in the vail, to drive him to where his car was
parked. Captain Koch checked with Maj. Marilyn Rey,
officer-in-charge of the recruiting detail, who thought it
was an excellent idea.
Captain Koch then drove carefully through the gathering crowd to the performer's nearby car.
It all turned out well as no one was injured, and the
singer gratefully gave his autograph to Cadets Leer and
All cadets involved had a thrilling story to tell their
squadron-mates and school friends. Two cadets have
autographs to prove it.

Unit flies in simulator

senior members from the 141st Search and Rescue Composite Squadron, Ramseur, N.C., recently participated in

similar to those "flown" by actual F-15 pilots. Maj. Tim
Culbreth was tested by two engine fires during his
simulation ride. tie commented, "No problem," as he
successfully extin~maished the flames.
Cadet Nick Gaggiano was navigator on his mission and
found tracking surrounding aircraft to be very interesting. "We located and homed-in on our KC-10 tanker fbr

Safety remains one of our top priorities
By Brig. Gen.
Wa r r e n J . B a r r y
national commander
Civil Air Patrol
As I begin my tenure as
your National Commander,
I find it very appropriate
that my first article for Civil
Air Patrol News focuses
o n S A F E T Y.
Safety is the prime factor
[br all of our activities as
we fulfill Civil Air Patrol's
three-fi~!d mission. Afle,"
last ~cars disappointing
incrc,,-e in both flying and
vehich mishaps, I was
tasked as national vice comzn an der to become involved
in reversing these negative
At each National Executive Committee meeting,
and regional or state conference, I put on my "black
hat" and tried to raise the
safety consciousness of our
membership by relating
tragic and sometimes totally senseless safety violations our members were experiencing.
After a disappointing
1989; Civil Air Patrol had

the third highest flying
accident rate in the last decade.., reversing a six-year
positive downward trend.
And this year began with a
d i s a s t r o u s fi r s t q u a r t e r.
Civil Air Patrol suffered the
tragic loss of four lives and
four aircraft in a four week
p e r i o d . A d d i t i o n a l l y, a n other six aircraft were
damaged during taxi or towing operations.
()ur vehicle operations
were similarly off to a t e r r i b l e start tbr1990.
l am however, pleased to
congratulate you all on your
safety awareness and superb efforts this past quarter. We have had only one
accident and more importantly no deaths these past
three months. Unfortunately our vehicle mishaps
have not decreased as dramatically.
On the positive side, personal injuries continue to
decline. Additional supervision and attention to
detail by all members at all
levels in Civil Air Patrol
will be needed to continue
this positive trend.

Historically the second
halfofa given year accounts
for 60-percent of our total
mishaps for the year. Summer encampments, additional flying and driving operations along with volatile weather conditions provide ample opportunity for
mishaps and therefore increased safety awareness.
(;eneral aviation's accident rate has steadily decreased to an all-time low
of only 7.25 accidents per
100.000 flying hours in
1989. It looks like 1990
will equal or better that
figure. I challenge each and
every member tx) work hard
in the next four months to
help Civil Air Patrol beat
the all-time low of seven
accidents achieved in 1985.
By setting and reaching this
goal, we can match general
aviation's overall statistics.
More importantly, we can
keep performing our vital
flying missions assisting
others in need without ourselves becoming the ones
in need of assistance.
In vehicle and ground
safety, this same dedica-

tion can protect our cadet
and senior members and
allow us to focus on our
important programs being
accomplished. Simple
things like clearing an area
of obstacles prior to starting cadet recreational activities or using a spotter
for all vehicle backing operations can result in a
marked mishap decrease.
%'aining is one of the most
important tbatures of all
Civil Air Patrol activities,
and to be truly eflbctive, it
m u s t b e d o n e s a t b l y. We
cannot afford, in both
human and monetary costs,
to not make this effort. Our
equipment and vehicles are
top notch.., we must operate them safely.
We just presented our annual safety awards during
National Board. I congratulate Northeast Region for
receiving the Air University Commander's Safety
Award. I congratulate Wyoming Wing on earning the
c o v e t e d P a u l W. Tu r n e r
Safety Award, and als, Maj.
William M. Palmer fi',~ bemg
named Civil A Patrol's

Safety. Officer of the Year.
I challenge each Civil Air
Patrol member to do their
part as contributors toward
earning safety recog'nition
at all levels. Make your
unit a little better with your
personal safety awareness
and actions.
Only you can make that
difference felt. With your
support we CAN make these
next two years the safest in
our 50-year history.

Air Force turns 43
GUNTERAFB, Ala. -- The United
States Air Force celebrates its 43rd
anniversary Sept. 18.
Amev'ican military airpower also
marks it 8:lrd anniversary having
begun its expansion as th(, airplane

August 1907. That first Army airplane provided scouting and observation or enemy troop movements.
The American belief in and pursuit
of airpower in a capacity other than
battlefield observation was slow in
c o m i n g . Ye t i n 8 3 y e a r s , a d v a n c e ments in aerospace can be described
as nothing short o[' phenomenal.
The National Security Act or 1947
created the Air Force with the intent
of providing a comprehensive program
for the future security of the nation
through airpower.
Less than a year later, the Berlin
Airlift began when the Soviet Union,
led by Joseph Stalin, blocked all routes
into Berlin, inside Soviet-occupied East
G e r m a n y. P r e s i d e n t t l a r r y S . Tr u man challenged the Air Force to supply the city entirely by air. This Air
Force mission success gave the Soviets their first Cold War defeat. Today
the Berlin Wall is also a part ofhistory
and Gern~any is soon to be a re-united
democratic nation.
I n 1950, America joined United Nations forces in the Korean War. Air
Force experience further proved airpower lessons learned in World War

first American jet fighter used in

Force left no doubt of the importance
orairpower. Air Force involvement in
Vietnam increased as communist forces
became ever more aggressive.
The first major bombing campaign
of the conflict was Rolling Thuncler,
which began in March 1965. The Air
I"()rce continu(,d precision hombing
with great success against North
Vietnam during air operations including Linebacker 1 and IAnebacker 11;
each time forcing the communists to
attend peace negotiations.
Today our Air Force is once again
being used in order to preserve peace.
In the Middle East, the Air Force is
proving once more that our nation's
leaders had the necessary foresigEt to
correctly ensure o u r country's security in the future with the National
Security Act of 1947.
Our Air Force today is also aiming
for the stars and taking quantum leaps
into new technology. In the past few
years, Air Force Space Command has
become a reality. The Air Force Institute of Technology at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio, is continually introducing new advanced technologies.

That fact hasn't changed since 1947

other Middle East Region
wings in a search for a missing Cessna 210 with six persons aboard. The aircraft wao
last heard from near
Richmond, Va., so the search
was concentrated in Central
and Northern.Virginia. North
Carolina Wing sent ground
teams to assist. The missing
aircraft was found on the

eighth day of the search by a
civilian ground team.
The Virginia search, according to Colonel Karnes, was
only practice for what came
The day after the first search
ended, Air Force Rescue Coordination Center officials activated North Carolina, Georgia and South Carolina Wings
to search for a missing Cessna
182 that was on a flight from
Greensboro to Franklin, N.C.
This aircraft had canceled its
original flight plan and attempted to proceed visually.
Last known location was
near the conjunction of state
lines south of Highlands, N.C.
After a six-day search it was
found on a mountainside west
of Highlands by an aircrew
from Shelby Composite Squadron. The pilot had been killed.
Afew weeks rest, said Colonel Karnes, was barely enough
for North Carolina Wing
searchers when AFRCC officials assigned another search
mission. A Mooney M20 with

two persons aboard was reported missing on a flight from
A n d r e w s - M ' u r p h y, N . C . t o

the departure airport. The
aircraft was located. Both
persons on board had died in

To top off a busy 30 days,
North Carolina and Tennessee Wings were called out to
find another missing Cessna
182. A five-day search was
completed when a South Piedmont Senior Squadron aircraft
found the missing Cessna on
yet another mountainside.
Ground teams took three hours
to get into the remote area,
only to discover the pilot in
this crash had also been killed.
North Carolina Wing alone
had more than 500 volunteers

The end and the beginning
By Col. Lester E. Hopper
national historian
GUNTER AFB, Ala. -- Kind
of an odd title for a column
which uses Civil Air Patrol's
"Duck Club" logo as an illustration. Let's examine it and
see why.
Some seven years ago, in
the April 1983 issue of this
fine newspaper, the very first
Historical Notes was published. It covered the "Duck
Club." The article pointed out
that the "Duck Club" was
established as a means of
recognizing the estimated 129
Civil Air Patrol airmen who
had survived the harrowing
experience of having crashed
at sea while on Coastal Patrol
Since that time, 88 other
Historical Notes have been
published on a nearly con-

secutive-issue basis. The topics
of these Historical Notes have
been many and varied. In so
doing, an attempt was made
by various authors to stimulate an interest in our organization's rich heritage.
Interest was stimulated.
H o w e v e r, a p o i n t h a s b e e n
reached where it is increasingly difficult to generate a
new topic each month. Accordingly, it has become necessary to change plans for the
presentation of this column.
Although it is not being discontinued, Historical Notes
will no longer appear on a
monthly basis. In the future,
it will be published as interesting historical material
becomes available.
Thus, we have come to, "The
End," of monthly publication
and, "The Beginning," ofocca-

sional publication; hence the
unusual column title. Another
way of putting it is that the
column crashed, but like "Duck
Club" members, will survive.
In the past, Civil Air Patrol's National Historical
Committee has appealed to
you, the reader, for help on
various projects. Here too,
you can help. If you have
historical material about Civil
Air Patrol which you feel is
worthy of publication, kindly
provide it to the National Historian in as complete a form
as possible.
Any such material may be
mailed to:
