Happy 100th!

"Part of Coleman’s aviation career brought her to Oakland, Calif. In 1923, she landed a job publicizing the Coast Tire and Rubber Company of Oakland and soon began appearing in the company’s newspaper ads." -- from https://www.oaklandairport.com/port-and-city-of-oakland-officials-dedicate-bessie-coleman-drive-at-oakland-international-airport/

Civil Air Patrol aircrew will conduct a test of their Airborne Public Address System (APAS) as part of the US National Weather Service Eureka California annual Tsunami Warning Communications Test. The test will be conducted with three CAP Aircraft from San Francisco Bay Group 2 and NorCal Group 5 - Civil Air Patrol
Civil Air Patrol will dispatch aircraft and crews from Concord and Santa Rosa to fly the Del Norte, Humboldt, and Mendocino counties coastline with the APAS system. A third aircraft will launch to act as a command and control platform for radio relays between the two broadcasting aircraft and the Virtual mission base.
Group 2 and California Wing have been a pioneer in the use of virtual mission bases through Microsoft Teams during Covid-19 and will utilize this platform during the exercise.
#nwcatsunamitest2021 #GoFlyCAP #CivilAirPatrol

The annual Tsunami Warning Communications Test in Del Norte, Humboldt, and Mendocino counties will be conducted on Wednesday, March 24th between 11 am and noon. The test will interrupt TV and radio broadcasts and turn on tsunami sirens in some areas. Additionally, local jurisdictions may test their reverse calling systems and the Civil Air Patrol will conduct a test of their airplane mounted broadcast system (weather depending). Be ready and remember, it’s only a test!

NORAD Tracks Santa

Since 1955, NORAD tracks Santa. 2020 will not take this one away from us! 😎

Preparations for NORAD Tracks Santa Are Underway!

Despite the challenges presented by COVID-19, the NORAD Tracks Santa program is on schedule and NORAD will track Santa on Dec. 24, as we have done every year since 1955.

The NORAD Tracks Santa website (www.noradsanta.org), social media pages, a new mobile app and partner platforms will again be an important part of the program allowing children around the world to track Santa. However, the NORAD Tracks Santa call center is being adapted due to ongoing public health concerns due to an increase in COVID-19 cases.

This year, only a small number of volunteers will be answering the NORAD Tracks Santa toll-free number, 1-877-Hi-NORAD, on Dec. 24. Callers who cannot reach one of these volunteers will receive a recorded update on Santa's current location. While NORAD understands the call center is an important tradition for many families around the world, we reduce the health risks posed by attempting to conduct a large indoor, in-person, call center during the pandemic.

Our condolences go out to the friends and family, may you all find peace today.

At this month's All-Hands meeting, Aerospace Education Officer Maj Mark Fridell gives an overview to squadron members via Teams of the OSIRIS-REx mission progress as part of our Aerospace Moment. NASA's OSIRIS-REx Asteroid Sample Return Mission is a NASA asteroid-study and sample-return mission. The mission's primary goal is to obtain a sample of at least 60 g from 101955 Bennu, a carbonaceous near-Earth asteroid, and return the sample to Earth for a detailed analysis.

Thank you to all of our veterans, including those who served their origin country before making this country yours.
