On this day, 20 years ago, tragedy struck the United States as terrorist attacks demolished symbols of our nation and claimed the lives of almost 3,000 people. Civil Air Patrol remembers and pays tribute to those who were affected by these attacks and remains immensely proud of all members who answered the call to serve their nation the next day through life-saving transport and aerial photography missions.

Stay tuned tomorrow to our social media pages as we will highlight the valiant efforts of Civil Air Patrol members in the immediate aftermath of the attacks.

Dole Air Race - Wikipedia

94 years ago today, the infamous Dole Air Race began at what is now Oakland Airport. Some fascinating footage [ https://youtu.be/4B9T9MCq_h8 ] and a good introduction [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dole_Air_Race ] ... "The Dole Air Race, also known as the Dole Derby, was a deadly air race across the Pacific Ocean from Oakland, California to Honolulu in the Territory of Hawaii held in August 1927. There were eighteen official and unofficial entrants; fifteen of those drew for starting positions, and of those fifteen, two were disqualified, two withdrew, and three aircraft crashed before the race, resulting in three deaths. Eight aircraft eventually participated in the start of the race on August 16, with only two successfully arriving in Hawaii; Woolaroc, a Travel Air 5000 piloted by Arthur C. Goebel and William V. Davis, arrived after a 26-1/4-hour flight, leading runner-up Aloha by two hours." ... the spirit of further, faster, higher continues today.

For this month's "5th Tuesday" Civil Air Patrol - Squadron 188 Oakland members gathered to make sure -- first and foremost -- that our trusty propane grill, in deep storage since before the pandemic, was still up to the task of providing the membership with the necessary nourishment required to keep a busy squadron running. We participated in the National HF radio net, taxied our assigned aircraft over to maintenance, and acted as net control for the local NorCal VHF radio net but mostly we enjoyed the company and camaraderie of each other on one of the longest nights of the year.

Our core values on display.
