|180th Fighter Wing and Coast Guard conduct training exercise|
Posting Date: 06/17/2014
(Toledo, Ohio) – Airmen from the 180th Fighter Wing and local Coast Guard conducted a search and recovery exercise recently near Caseville, Michigan.
The purpose of the exercise was to evaluate the participants’ preparedness in response to a simulated aircraft mishap scenario in which two F-16 fighter jets collided in mid-air. The exercise simulated one pilot safely ejecting into Lake Huron while the other aircraft diverted to Alpena, Michigan with simulated damage to the aircraft.
During this exercise, a pilot was placed on
a raft off the coast of Caseville County Park for the Coast Guard to practice a water extraction. This scenario provided safe, joint training in a realistic environment for the 180th FW and the Coast Guard, ensuring they are ready to provide a quick response in the event of a real-life incident.
The 180th FW appreciates the support from the Coast Guard and continued support we have from the citizens of Northwest Ohio and Michigan as we continue to train in support of our mission.
