    Members from the 104th Fighter Wing Aircraft Maintenance Squadron conduct a crashed, damaged, disabled aircraft recovery (CDDAR) exercise, June 1, 2024, at Barnes Air National Guard Base, Westfield, Massachusetts.
    "We are simulating a fully mission capable jet that went off the runway, and the nose landing gear collapsed," said Master Sgt. Adam Dempsey, 104th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron repair and reclamation supervisor. "In this event, the CDDAR team is assembled and dispatched to return the aircraft to a level status and then remove the aircraft from a stuck condition and back onto the runway where it's in a safe, towable condition to continue the mission.”
    This joint exercise also included Airmen from Hanscom Air Force Base, Bradley Air National Guard Base, Burlington ANGB, and Westover ANGB.
    "By working with other units during this exercise, we are also able to maximize mission readiness while bringing the regional community together and saving money and resources through other units being able to train together here at Barnes," said Dempsey.
