There is always a first: The 1st Expeditionary Rescue Group Activation
There is always a first: The 1st Expeditionary Rescue Group activationThe helicopter was the mainstay of the post-World War II U.S. Air Force rescue structure. Lt. Carter Harman made the first helicopter combat rescue, in Burma behind Japanese lines April 25, 1944. First Air Commando Sgt. Pilot Ed “Murphy” Hladovcak crash-landed his L-1 aircraft with three wounded British soldiers on board. Pushing his YR-4 helicopter to its performance limits, Harman made four flights to the site, making the final hasty liftoff just as shouting soldiers burst from the jungle. He learned later the soldiers were not Japanese, rather an allied land-rescue party.

Simulator cuts dollars, increases training availability
Aerial refueling simulator cuts dollars, increases training availabilityAt 12,000 feet, the airman from the 155th Air Refueling Wing lies on his stomach in the KC-135 Stratotanker’s boom pod, his hands tense on the controls. “Start guiding in the receiving plane,” a voice tells him. The airman may feel nervous, but the B-1 Lancer pilot sounds calm as he receives permission to approach. With tracking lights the airman guides the B-1 closer: To within 10 feet, then 5, then 2. To the operator, the extending boom seems to touch its own shadow on the jet nose. It squeezes past the white "fishbone" pattern painted on the nose and nears the refueling socket 15 inches below the pilot’s front windshield. The airman hesitates to press the button as the nozzle hovers over the target—his delay proves costly.
