145th MXS CDDAR Team, hand selected Airmen for a special mission

U.S. Air Force Airmen from the 145th Maintenance Squadron, raised a Convair F-102 Delta Dagger aircraft during Crashed, Damaged, Disabled Aircraft Recovery (CDDAR) training held at the Carolina Aviation Museum, Charlotte, N.C., Dec. 21, 2015. The hand selected CDDAR Team, must be re-certified every three years to maintain expertise in recovering an aircraft in the event of a mishap, and clearing the runway in the most efficient and safest way. Using a decommissioned aircraft minimizes the effect on the 145th Airlift Wing’s current operations and makes training as realistic as possible.
