    B-roll video shows members of the 185th Air Refueling Wing in Sioux City, Iowa removing a Vietnam War era F-100 Super Sabre from a pedestal mount in order to have the aircraft cleaned and painted.

    Removing the aircraft allowed members of the unit's Crash Damage Deposit Recovery or CDDR (see-dar) team to get involved. The CDDR team used module lifting bags that are part of the aircraft crash equipment kit to gently rest the aircraft on the ground.

    Lowering the 60 year old aircraft on the large pneumatic bags made the job of putting it on the ground safer for the aircraft and safer for the Airmen who were working to recover F-100.

    Being on the CDDR team is an extra duty for members of the Iowa Air Guard unit. The crash recovery team is made of aircraft maintainers from a variety of maintenance shops.

    After the aircraft was removed from the pedestal it was lowered onto lifting bags where members of the crash recover team were able to lower the landing gear.

    By the end of the day the aircraft was moved to the units main hangar will it will be cleaned and prepared before being painted.

    Technical Sgt. Kevin Brown works in the 185th ARW Repair and Reclamation shop and is a member of the crash recovery team.

    He said this was a great opportunity to train with the CDDR equipment. Brown said they hope to have the F-100 back on display by spring of 2022.
