CAP: In 1st Air Force spotlight

A CAP Cessna 172 is displayed next to an F-15 and F-16 as part of a new, permanent display at 1st Air Force at Tyndall Air Force Base, Fla. The Air Force planes have played key roles in the War on Terror since 2001. After 9/11, CAP provided some of the first airborne images of ground zero for then-New York Gov. George Pataki and first responders from around the nation and flew numerous sorties to move critical supplies along the Eastern Seaboard in the days and weeks that followed. CAP also flies more than 2,000 hours performing air defense intercept training exercises each year, which helps prepare fighter units across the country. U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt.
