Crash, Damaged, Destroyed Aircraft Recovery Exercise

Airman 1st Class Casey Gray and Tech. Sgt. Bronson Priebe, crew chiefs with the 169th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron at McEntire Joint National Guard Base, S.C., respond to a simulated aircraft mishap with a crashed F-16 fighter jet and UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter during a Crash, Damaged, Destroyed Aircraft Recovery (CDDAR) exercise on January 31, 2012. A1C Gray and TSgt. Priebe connect straps to the F-16 jet so that it may be connected to a crane and transported from the accident sight. The training was important for all personnel involved due to the reality of the scenario, with the base sharing both air frames. (National Guard photo by Tech. Sgt. Caycee Watson/Released)
