Angel Thunder in Pictures
Once again I had an opportunity to participate in Angel Thunder, the US Air Force‘s personnel recovery exercise. I missed some of the highlights, such as the simulated rescue at the Grand Canyon, one of the first (and largest) military exercises in a national park. But, I was able to observe a simulated air crash at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Arizona, where local emergency responders came in to assist, and an emergency response at Playas Training Center in New Mexico involving US, Colombian, Chilean, Brazilian, and Singaporean units responding to explosions that caused casualties in a simulated village. Some of my photos are below.

Very cool. Not quite like these pics, but I still remember when my Army son told me he could now fix a ‘sucking chest wound’. I felt so much safer.

Glad you liked them, and thank your son for his service – hooah! He’ll know what that last word means. 🙂
