Low Pressure, Heavy Lifting – CDDAR
A decommissioned U.S. Air Force F-16D Fighting Falcon sits at the Naval Air Station Wildwood Aviation Museum in Cape May, N.J. on May 22, 2016 in preparation for Crash Damaged Disabled Aircraft Recovery (CDDAR) training being conducted by the New Jersey Air National Guard's 177th Fighter Wing. A primary objective of the CDDAR program is to return any runways involved in a mishap to operational status as soon as practical and 177th CDDAR team members with unique fields of expertise used compressors, gauged manifolds, hoses and pneumatic bags to simulate lifting the aircraft with a failed landing gear.
