six months or more. CAP's aircraft are not getting any
younger and will eventually fall into disuse. Where will this
put CAP as a flying organization? On the ground.

Six Eastern CAP Wings Help Search for Bomber
N AT I O N A L H E A D Q U A R TERS -- Responding to a request from officials at the
Air Force Eastern Aerospace
R e s c u e a n d R e c o v e r y C e n t e r,
Robins AFB, Ga., CAP units from
Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New
York, New Jersey, Massachusetts
and Rhode Island wings helped
search for a missing USAF B-57.
The crew of the twin engine jet
bomber sent three May Day messages while on a simulated bombi n g r u n f r o m S t e w a r t A F B , N . Y. ,
to Otis AFB, Mass.
The third May Day message, reporting that the plane was in
trouble, faded out and the crew
has not been heard from since.
USAF immediately set up search
rescue operations and requested
the CAP wings to help search the
six-state area.
At presstime little information
was available as to the extent New
York. New Jersey, Massachusetts
and Rhode Island wings participated in the search, but detailed
information was received on activity by Connecticut and Pennsylvania wings.
All leads proved to be false and
after five days of aerial and
ground searching Air Force officials suspended the mission.

Busy Buckeye Cadets
DURING SEARCH and rescue mission recently held by Ohio Wing, cadets, under competent senior
guidance, handled many flight line duties and took care of such tasks as filling out initial alert
forms, briefing and debriefing forms, vehicle and aircraft clearance papers and fuel vouchers.
They also served coffee and sandwiches to returning crews. Cadets from Lima Composite
Squadron 901, shown processing paperwork at the Lima airport base of operations, are, left to
right, Nila Lawrence, Peggy Daeger, Debra Davis, Perry Coomes and Jim Schaffner. Extensive
use of cadets relieved senior members who were required to perform more technical functions.
Mission was terminated when the target was found just after noon of the second day. Cadets
received a "well done" for their efforts from all echelons of command.

During the four-day search for a
USAF B-57, crews of the Connecticut Wing flew 24 sorties for a total
or' 45 flying hours, covering the,

FIRST STEP in making additional improvements in the Illinois Wing aircraft inventory was the
purchase of the two Champion Citabrias. It's all smiles for, from left, Colonel Brodsky, Lt. Col.
W. Truver, Colonel Schneider, and Lt. Col. Johnson, as the keys to one of the planes are turned
over to Colonel Truver for use in Group 7. The plane will be used for orientation flights, search
and rescue, and towing gliders in the wing's soaring program.




SPINNER adjustment is made by Donald Newman and the
Illinois Wing planes are ready to leave the factory. Awaiting
the plane is Lt. Col. Art Schneider who directed the aircraft
management program for the plane purchase. Other wing officers taking part in the ferry service were Maj. Ronald Westholm, information officer, and Capt. Thomas O'Shea, wing
