THE KEYSTONE
WING SLIP
SQUADRONS 704 AND 603 PARTICIPATEDIN CRASH SITE SECURITYMISSION
On July 10th and 11th, 2006, Squadrons 704 and 603 were activated for a crash sitesecurity mission in Tioga County, Pennsylvania. First Lieutenant Scott R. Croskey,Emergency Service Officer of the Golden Triangle Composite Squadron, sent theKeystone Wing Slip photographs and information pertaining to the mission. He felt thatit was a valuable lesson and rewarding experience for the cadets. “This mission was agreat first mission for the majority of cadets who participated. It showed them howemergency service missions fit into Civil Air Patrol,” said Lieutenant Croskey. With thecrash site serving as an outdoor classroom for the cadets, the time spent throughout themission served as real time hands-on training. “We were released on Tuesday morningby the FAAsafety investigators”, continued Lieutenant Croskey.The aircraft, a yellow ultralight, no tail number, crashed in a field with maximumdamage to the plane. The pilot was able to walk away from the crash with just minorbumps and bruises.The group photograph of cadets and senior members pictured on the cover of thisissue are, (from left to right); First Lieutenant Scott Croskey, Cadets; Patrick Knights,Benjamin Cooke, Michael Williams, Joshua Deleuze, Andrea Finizio and FirstLieutenant Jared Hostetler.Since 1941, Civil Air Patrol has strived to save lives and alleviate human sufferingthrough a myriad of emergency services missions - Search and Rescue, Disaster Relief and Humanitarian Services. CAPvolunteers are on call, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.Missions are initiated to locate missing aircraft, aid aircraft crash victims, search formissing persons, rescue people in distress, locate the source of emergency locator trans-mitter signals and serve on crash site security.Cadet Andrea Finizio said, “This was my very first mission. I was surprised when Iwent to one of our regular meetings and it was announced that anyone that has there 101card and would like to serve on this mission, they are needed and would have to gettheir gear here A.S.A.P. During the mission we went over training. I loved that. Ithelped me with items I need for my 3rd level of qualification. If asked to go on anothermission I would say yes.” Cadet Finizio continued, “my future goals in CAPare tolearn to fly. I want to attend one of the CAPpowered flight encampments.”
