136th Airlift Wing 150,000 mishap-free hours

In April of 2003 the 136th Airlift Wing based at Carswell Field, Texas, surpassed the milestone of flying over 150,000 hours of mishap-free flying. The achievement of reaching 150,000 hours of Class A free flying is a tribute to the professionalism and dedication of over two generations of aircrews and maintenance personnel. They have remained focused on safety as the number one priority as they very successfully completed numerous deployments in support of major contingencies, AEFs, and exercises. Their attention to CRM and ORM issues have been repaid by reaching this milestone. The unit has been guided by over lowing commanders during this mishap-free period of more than 38 years. Each commander has been committed to providing time and assets to ensure safety prevailed as the prevalent culture within the Wing.

142nd Fighter Wing surpases safety milestone

The Oregon Air National Guard's 142nd Fighter Wing has surpassed an F-15 flight safety milestone. Oregon's 'Red Hawks" became the first Air National Guard F-15 flying unit to record more than 60,000 mishap-free flight hours. The safety record was recorded while Oregon aircrews were conducting Dissimilar Aircraft Training with the US Navy and Marines at Miramar Naval Air Station near San Diego, Calif., Feb. 1-14. "This safety milestone is a testament to the amount of flying we do," said Col Garry Dean, 142nd Fighter Wing Commander. "It's also a tribute to the professionalism and passion our people have for their military mission in Portland."
