A Civil Air Patrol plane surveys an airstrip near the shores of the Cook Inlet, Alaska, during a mock exercise called Alaska Shield March 29, 2014. In the event a natural disaster, photographers are flown by Civil Air Patrol volunteers to key energy sites to assess damage and then provide their photos to the response leaders for analysis. Alaska Shield 14 is an exercise that involves state, federal, military, and local agencies, designed to test response and coordination efforts during a disaster and is modeled after the 1964 earthquake and subsequent tsunami that devastated much of South Central Alaska.
