CAP Participates in Luke AFB Open House

Luke Days Group Shot - 1By Lt Col Pete Feltz

The Luke Days Airshow on 2-3 April celebrated 75 Years of Airpower in 2016.  Interestingly, the Civil Air Patrol also is celebrating its 75th Anniversary this year. 

There was a lot of preparation for the event by Civil Air Patrol, in part because of tighter security at the Air Force Base entrance. Maj Matt Fields served as project officer and was the primary point of contact between CAP and Luke AFB. Thirty-two seniors and 87 cadets signed up to participate in this activity from Friday to Sunday. Some of the participants camped overnight on base and had their breakfast and dinner in the Luke Dining Facility. Arizona Wing provided lunch both days at the activity headquarters. 

CAP participation was divided into three sections: Static displays, the Aerospace Education exhibit, and cadet participation.
