STEWART AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE, NEWBURGH, N.Y. -- A team of 105th Airlift Wing maintainers hone their skills by participating in a Crash, Damaged, Disabled, Aircraft, Recovery exercise during the Unit Training Assembly Nov. 6, 2011. The exercise is an annual requirement for CCDAR team proficiency which also lets Airmen use the palletized equipment and ensures it is ready for use. Recover kits are made up of inflatable air bags, protective mats, air manifolds, hoses and air compressors. Recovery of a damaged or disabled aircraft is not as simple as just inflating some bags under the plane. CCDAR teams use instructions called Technical Orders which instruct them on locating the proper lift points, how to prepare the ground under the lift points, maximum bag height, bag inflation order and air pressures to name a few of the requirements.
