CAP Lake Search
Proves Successful
WALKER, Minn. -- The sole
survivor of a four-man motorboat which overturned June 1 in
Leech Lake in northern
Minnesota was almost too weak
to wave an arm and "gave up
hope" of ever being rescued, a
Cass County official said.
"He told me he had one more
wave left in his arm," Sheriff
Louis Calich, who is also a
member of CAP's Cass County
Sq. 206, said of Lee Visser, 40, of
Traer, Iowa. Traer survived
more than 17 hours in the chilly
waters of the lake before being
rescued. "He was one tough
guy," the sheriff said.

Three of his fishing companions, also from Iowa, were
not as fortunate, however, either
drowning or dying of exposure,
Calich said. The group was on the
lake in an 18-foot boat with a 35horsepower outboard motor
when water, buffeted by high
winds, splashed over the sides of
the craft and apparently overturned it. All the men were wearing life jackets.
When the men failed to return
to the resort at nightfall, the
sheriff's office and the Minnesota
Wing of Civil Air Patrol began a
search for him. They were later
forced to quit since high winds
made it too dangerous to fly. The
temperature dropped to 38
degrees overnight and the water
in the lake was reported to be
about 48 degrees.
The search was resumed at 5
a.m. and at about 7:20 a.m.
Calich spotted the overturned
boat. but none of its occupants.
Visser apparently nan neld onto
the craft until daylight when it
drifted away from him
"He told me he saw me fly
over, but I didn't see him because
the visibility was so poor,"
Calich said. Several minutes
later, the sheriff again flew over
Visser who was about a mile east
of the boat and this time spotted
"He was just waving at me and
hoping I'd see him," Calich said.
"I'm awfully glad -- and lucky-that I did!"
Calich was flying a Civil Air
Patrol plane, thus giving the
Minnesota Wing credit for
another save this year.

200 New Jersey Wing Cadets
Spend Week at McGuire
McGUIRE AFB, N.J. -- Some
200 Civil Air Patrol cadets from
all parts of the state of New
Jersey recently completed a
week of spit and polish during
their summer encampment, learning what life at a military in-

stallation is like.
Up at 5:30 a.m. each morning
and to bed at 10 p.m. each night,
the cadets spent a full day in activities during each of the eight
days the encampment lasted.
Activities included aerospace

education classes, flight
simulator instruction, close
order drill, rescue instruction,
and military courtesy and discipline. They learned to clean
their sleeping area, to make
hospital corners on their beds -and had eight days of fun.
The encampment culminated
in a final dress parade, with a
Certificate of Achievement being
awarded each cadet who attended. Those attending the final
parade and graduation included
Col. Ri Nakamura, New Jersey
Wing commander, and Col. Fred
Bell, former wing commander.

Pilot Files Plan,
B y 1st Lt. PHIL WEBER
Pennsylvania Wing
READING, Penn. -- Joe Pilot
(not you, of course) takes off
from his home base and heads to
the Reading Air show. He was
smart in filing a flight plan, and
arrives as planned, taxis to the
parking area, and begins to enjoy
the displays, demonstrations,
and seminars that make the
Reading Show unique in the
world of General Aviation.
The only thing is: He forgot to
call the Harrisburg FSS and close
his flight plan. The result: A mis~ing aircraft Alert Notification
(ALNOT) is issued by the
Federal Aviation Administration
one hour after his expeetod time
of arrival (ETA). During the
week of the Reading Show, Civil
Air Patrol is notified immediatel y b y t h e FA A , a n d s e n i o r

"Most of the time, the 'missing' aircraft is found within 30
minutes of our receipt of the

"Aerospace education is one of
CAP's goals, and the Reading
Show provides an invaluable opportunity for us to participate,
Also, we would always want a
pilot to file a flight plan and then
forget to close, rather than not
having him file at all."
According to Capt. Gary
Wilson, a CAP instructor for
search and rescue management,
the difference in response time
by CAP between an overdue aircraft with a flight plan and one
without one is literally a matter
of life and death. "When a flight
plan has been filed and an aircraft is overdue at its destination, an ALNOT is normally
issued in only one hour after the
ETA," he said, "and a search is
launched in another hour or when
the fuel on board is estimated to

be expended, whichever comes
"Without a flight plan, the initial ALNOT may not be issued
until someone else accidentally
notices that the aircraft is overdue, and that often takes several
hours, or even days. In the case
of light plane crashes, the chance
of finding survivors drops by 90
percent after the first 24 hours,
so a flight plan is a very cheap insurance policy."
During the course of the show,
about 50 planes are reported to
CAP as overdue. Included in this
total are not only aircraft listing
their destination as Reading, but
also any flights that might have
diverted to Reading to see the
show. Most are located by ramp
checks so the launch of Civil Air
Patrol search planes is usually
not necessary.
Ramp searches for the
"missing" aircraft are not
carried out in a random manner.
Usually, the parking area that
was being filled at the aircraft's
ETA is scoured first, then ex-

panded outwards. Normally,
most aircraft are spotted within
15 minutes. Also, since ALNOTS
are received sequentially according to ETA, there is a good
chance that the next missing
plane is not too far from the
previous one. Rarely do searches
last more than one-half hour.
Also, inadvertently activated
emergency locator transmitters
(ELTs) present an opportunity
for CAP personnel to practice
locating techniques, using
handheld electronic direction finding equipment. "Actually, this
week is one heck of a good training mission for our people." Col.
Obold said. "It's effective and
costs next to nothing. This is an
official mission authorized by the
Air Force Rescue Coordination
Center, and our gasoline expenses are reimbursed to us."
By the way, if as you read this
article you realize that your
flight plan is not closed, you're in
good company. During the 1977
Reading Show, even a NASA aircraft was among the planes
located by the Civil Air Patrol.

Training Mission
Called Successful

Atomic Ills
ARDSLEY. N.Y. Members
of CAP's Westchester Group
here participated recently in the
first rocket re-entry exercise
ever conducted by the Putnam
County Office of Civil Defense.
At the request of Michael
Scalpi, director of CD for the
county, CAP members of the
Westchester Group provided
aerial radiological monitoring to
locate "debris" which supposedly had fallen from a nuclearpowered satellite.
During the mock disaster, two
aircrew members conducted the
search from above and maintained radio contact with five
staff personnel who acted as
communicators. Information
received by them was funnelled
into a radio relay system connecting Westchester County Airport
with Mohansic Park, Lake
Mahopac and Carmel. Some
minor reception problems occurred but were quickly cleared
and normal operations resumed.
Maj. Allen Porgorzelski,
Westchester Group commander,
was pleased with the effort. "It
afforded us an excellent opportunity," he said. "not only to test
our radio capabilities but also to
develop a close integration of effort with such emergency units
as the Red Cross. Civil Defense
and Amateur Radio Services."

GROSSE ILE. Mich. "The
mission was successful overall.
We accomplished the assigned
tasks and got the necessary information back to the civil defense
personnel." summarized Lt. Col.
Herbert Kauffman.
"We also were able to
recognize our weak spots and
earmark them for more practice
in the future."
Kauffman was speaking about
the recent Michigan Wing civil
defense exercise in which more
than 250 seniors and cadets took
part. The exercise received a
satisfactory rating from the Air
Force evaluation team.

Thunderstorm Adds
Realism to Training
WEST MIFFLIN, Penn. -About 6:30 p.m., during a
thunderstorm in early June, Civil
Air Patrol's radio network picked up the ominous message: A
large cargo plane, loaded with
radioactive material, has apparently gone down somewhere
in Pennsylvania.

'Victims' Get Aid

Hospital, Group 1400
Stage Mock Disaster
Pennsylvania Wing Group 1400
and the Connellsville State
General Hospital staged a joint
surprise mock disaster on a recent weekend.
The mock disaster was a bus
"wreck" east of Dunbar, Penn.
The bus carried 10 cub scouts and
t h r e e d e n m o t h e r s from
Maryland to Laurel Mall.
The Group 1400 ground team
found the "wreck" and secured
the area. They reported their findings to base headquarters at
Connellsville Airport. Headquarters, in turn, called
Connellsville Hospital which called ambulances and a fire truck.




Very shortly, all the rescue units and fire department arrived
at the "wreck" site where they
gave the make-believe victims
the necessary first aid before
transporting them to the
Upon arrival at the hospital,
each "patient" was taken into an
emergency room where Dr.
Stephen Andolina, Emergency
Room chief and medical coordinator, and his staff evaluated,
examined and treated the "injured."
Later, at a debriefing session,
Dr. Edward Krivda, hospital administrator, asked: "How did
you do it so fast? It was only 45
minutes from the time the call
came in until you had all the victims at the hospital."
He later added that "we were
well pleased.., with the manner
in which all participating units
concerted their efforts. Civil Air
Patrol and the fire and ambulance companies proved that,
should we ever have such a disaster, victims could be located,
given emergency treatment and
transported safely and quickly to
the hospital."
Cub scouts and den mothers
participating in the exercise
were from Cub Pack No. 150 of
Trinity United Methodist Church
in Seottsdale.

By 7 a.m. Saturday, ground
teams, consisting mainly of
cadets well trained in search and
survival techniques, are checking out the area of the plane's
last known position. The continning storm has prevented an
air search but as the clouds begin
to lift about 11 a.m., that also can
The tremendous amount of rain
during the storm has also caused
another problem. Many streams
in the state have risen to alarming levels and there is a
problem of potential flooding or
damage to dams. This also must
be checked and, if there is a
dangerous situation developing,
the alert can be given in time to
prevent a tragedy.
The disappearance of the aircraft was a planned, simulated
problem organized by the Pennsylvania Wing of Civil Air Patrol.
Capt. John Holcomb announced
that this exercise would take
place and the weather unexpectedly cooperated, pouring
heavy rain on the state so that
concern for flooding was real.
Each of the 16 groups in the
Pennsylvania Wing planned their
own response in cooperation with
other civil defense agencies in
their own areas.
About 1,000 CAP personCitl
were involved in the exercise.
Some 150 pilots flew air search,
using the 27 aircraft owned by
CAP as well as other privately
owned planes.
Col. Andrew Skiba, wing commander, and Lt. Col. Sylvester
Curto, mission chief inspector,
flew to many of the local group
mission headquarters to offer advice and assistance in accomplishing their part of the
lifesaving mission.

assistance from a well-trained
group of communicators, was
responsible for maintaining contact with all local centers and
mission headquarters. Lt. Col.
Glenn Schreiber was the mission
flight operations officer.
The entire exercise was
observed and evaluated by the
Air Force.

In addition to the personnel involved, more than 20 aircraft and
30 ground vehicles were
employed. The exercise also
stayed within budget on the fuel
allowances, Kauffman added.
Col. Kauffman was mission
coordinator for the statewide exercise with the emergency
operations center located at
Selfridge ANGB in Mt. Clemens.
Operational bases were located
at airports near Lansing, Bay

Space Colony Envisioned

California Wing

Among the more ambitious
projects proposed for future
development in space is the
space colony. A colony in space
would provide more room for
Earth's expanding population,
and directly benefit the further
exploration of our universe.
In form, the colony would
resemble a giant wheel, a mile or
more in diameter. You may
remember a similar design used
in the movie "2001: A Space
Odyssey." A location for the first
colony is proposed on the Moon's
orbit, an equal distance from
both earth and the Moon (about
240,000 miles from each).
The large, tubular outer ring of
the wheel would contain an
Earth-like environment, with
near-Earth-normal gravity
provided by spinning the colony
at one revolution per minute. A
deep layer of soil would provide a
surface for farming, and parklike areas for recreation and
housing. This environment, lit
and heated by solar radiation,
would comfortably support about
I0,000 people. With special
agricultural techniques aided by
24-hour-a-day sunlight, 111 acres
of farmland would feed the entire
population. A colonist would lead
a fairly comfortable, if active,
Light industrial production.
like the manufacture, placement
and maintenance of satellites or
other colonial facilities, would
make this space community selfsupporting. Raw materials,
readily accessible to surface
mining on the Moon, would
provide a cheap source of
material and solar energy a free
source of power for industry.
The present growth rate and
direction of our aerospace
technology puts realization of
such projects within the grasp of
the next generation. Today's
aerospace science student might

be tomorrow's designer or
engineer involved in just such a
project. His children may well be
reared in such a space colony environment.
The Aerospace Education
Programs for Civil Air Patrol
cadets is one way today's budding young scientist can reach
his goal -- that of becoming involved in such momentous
achievements. CAP offers young
Americans a basic grounding in
aviation and aerospace

technology. Cadets who excel in
all areas are further encouraged
with scholarship and grant opportunities. Top cadets may be
awarded Air Force Academy appointments.
The junior high school student
who has decided what course to
follow in life, and has determined
that that course will be one of
the aerospace sciences, can find
many opportunities to reach his
goals through the Civil Air Patrol
Cadet Program.

Dick DeCorps, center, executive officer of the air station. Looking on is Capt. William MaacusL

With a long and distinguished background in search and rescue, more
than 100 members ~f CAP's Brooklyn Group (New York Wing) recently
joined another search and rescue organization--the local unit of the
U.S. Coast Guard in celebrating its 40th anniversary at Brooklyn Air
It was open house at the air station and owners of antique aircraft
flew them into the station for display. The Brooklyn Group brought its
own CAP plane and may have had the distinction of being the last to fly
a fixed wing aircraft onto the station.
Civil Air Patrol members helped in crowd control and conducted
tours of the installation.
The local Coast Guard unit has performed many rescue and mercy
missions since it was established in April 1938 at the New York
Municipal Airport, Floyd Bennett Field.
In 1941, the Navy expanded the field for wartime air operations. This
period saw the Coast Guard performing many hours of coastal security
patrols and search and rescue missions in support of the war effort-something CAP was also engaged in.
In 1941. the first helicopter life-saving mission was flown from the
Brooklyn Air Station to deliver blood plasma to the injured survivors of
an explosion aboard the USS Turner off Sandy Hook, N.J.
Today, the air station is an all-helicopter unit composed of six singleturbine machines. In recent years, the Brooklyn Air Station has aided
in approximately 400 search and rescue missions per year.

In the distance you hear a voice
saying, "Put the mask on! Put
the mask to your face!" You take
your left hand and reach up, and
you feel the mask. Something inside says to cover your face, but
somebody outside is doing it for
you. An airman, acting as
monitor, lifts the mask to your
face and snaps it in place.
At the same time, he's pushing
the three levers on the control
panel forward: "Oxygen On,
100% Oxygen," and "Emergency
Oxygen." You start shaking a little, but the airman is holding you

steady in your seat.
Finally, those blurred objects

This is an experience one
might have when suffering from
the effects of hypoxia at an
altitude of 25,000 feet. The approximate time without oxygen
for this to happen is 3~/z minutes.
In April, a dozen officers of the
Howard Showalter Sr. Sq., Orlando, Fla., began classroom training at the Aerospace
Physiological Training Center
here at MacDill AFB.

The morning was spent attending lectures and demonstrations
on physical and mental responses
to certain conditions of flight and
the associated illnesses. Some of
the subjects studied were
hyperventilation, hypoxia, selfimposed stresses, decompression
sickness and spatial disorientation.
The afternoon sessions were
designed to give students the opportunity to practice their newfound knowledge. But more importantly, it was a chance for
each individual to experience
various in-flight incapacitating
afflictions. A flight in the decompression or altitude chamber, as
it is better known, was encouraged for all, but it wasn't
mandatory. (Only a third class

Frank Burnham of the California

of how the Mission Data Team

this column, your most productive activity early in the mission
is to gather as much data as
possible on the occupants of the

the brush beating, they become
much less threatened and ESAR
is warmly welcomed.
"9. Participate in multi-unit
conferences and training exercises. Each conference is an opportunity to (1) learn about what
other units do: (2) become known
yourself, and (3) talk about
ESAR to those who have incomplete knowledge.
"10. If you want to take on
mountaineering as a specialized
function, be sure that the training meets generally accepted
standards. If possible utilize
Mountain Rescue members in
conducting training (See No. 7
"Experience thus far has
shown that older ESAR members
can gain proficiency in mountaineering skills and are helpful
in support roles on mountain
rescue operations. However,
rescue capability on high angle
rock or on ice requires training
and experience generally beyond
that of most ESAR members. A
person is 23-25 before he is good
enough for that work. For this
reason, mountaineering capability, beyond that of support roles.
is not seen as practical for
ESAR. Older members whose interest carry them in that direction might be better advised to
join Mountain Rescue. There Is,
of course, no reason why they
can't also remain active in
leadership roles in ESAR.
"11. Conduct: It is important
for all ESAR members to realize
the effect their conduct may
have on their ESAR unit. Youth
who engage in horseplay in base
camp may be seen as unprofessional by adult searchers,
unfeeling by the lost person's
relatives, etc.
"Remember you are offering
something others want.
"1. As a volunteer unit, you are
offering a free community service. From the~ sheriff's (or
responsible agency's) viewpoint,
it couldn't be a better deal. He
gets a valuable service, on short
notice, at no cost. and it requires
little (if any) of his time to administer.
"2. You are dealing with youth.
Many sheriffs of adult members
of other SAR groups like the idea
of helping young people.
"3. As mentioned, the
traditional ESAR role of brushbeating is not in conflict with the
role assumed by most adult SAR
"a. Most adults would rather
not do it themselves.
"h. Young people are willing.
"c. Generally speaking, the
biggest demand on searches is
for qualified brush beaters."

well-disciplined young people. As
the ability to maintain discipline
increases , the size of the group
can increase.
"2. Make training a prerequisite to going on real
operations. Train Well enough
that the teams will be up to most
any task they may be assigned.
"3. Emphasize to the members
that they must never make any
kind of negative remark about
another SAR group. The only exception may be to an ESAR
leader and only in private.
"4. Emphasize a supportive
relationship to other SAR units.
(You are available to help them,
not vice-versa. )
"5. Quickly critique each of
your operations. Learn as fast as
you can and smooth out rough
spots in your operations.
"6. If you hear something
negative from a member of
another unit. privately try to get
him to spell it out to you. If his
concern is valid, do something
