KY214 Squadron Hosts Joint Agency SAREX

On the weekend of November 14-15, 2015 The Bowman Field Senior Squadron hosted a search and rescue exercise (SAREX) that included Oldham County Emergency Management and several other CAP squadrons. Both air and ground activities took place during the SAREX. The event was for both training and to help work on interacting with local agencies during emergency/crisis situations. Over sixty (60) CAP members participated in the activity along with several local EM personnel. Operations were conducted out of the Bowman Field Readiness Center (BFRC) and at forward locations in Oldham County. Two aircraft were used during the exercise and they were flown both days for a total of 8 sorties. There were 12 ground sorties conducted during the exercise as well. CAP flew 14.2 hours and drove over 447 miles during the SAREX. The squadron had 14 members participate in aircrew training activities along with one cadet. Missions flown included aerial photography, electronic searches and visual searches. CAP airmen also staffed the mission base and provide communications for the event. Here are some photographs from Saturday's activities.
