ALASKA -- The Civil Air Patrol in Fairbanks recently participated in Red Flag-Alaska by providing a small force of "target" aircraft, which provided both the Air Force and CAP crews with valuable training and experience. Simulating opposing forces, aircrews from Eielson's 71st Composite Squadron provided the first ever CAP support to the Red Flag-Alaska exercise. During two missions, a CAP deHavilland DHC-2 Beaver simulated a low flying bush plane, and with most fighter planes up high, the Beaver attempted to sneak in low on a predetermined route.
