Wing emergency responders react to aircraft hard landing

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. - Emergency responders from the 21st Space Wing leapt into action Feb. 4 after a pilot landed a Cessna aircraft with its landing gear in the up position at the Colorado Springs Airport. The aircraft was a rental from the 21st Force Support Squadron’s Aero Club. The pilot, a military member stationed at Peterson AFB, was unharmed. The aircraft was transported to a base hanger as part of the normal investigation process, and the 21st Space Wing’s Safety Office is conducting an investigation in concert with the National Transportation Safety Board. “The quick and professional response is testament to the emergency training our wing practices to ensure base safety and readiness,” said Col. Chris Crawford, 21st SW commander. (U.S. Air Force photo/Rob Bussard)

Jeffrey Flewelling, 21st Space Wing vice commander (center), visited the 21st Operations Group Detachment 4, based at Moròn Air Base, Spain, Jan. 1, to get a first-hand look at how the unit contributes to U.S. Strategic Command’s space control mission of detecting, tracking and identifying all manmade deep-space objects. Detachment 4 is one of the 21st Space Wing’s 39 units, and operates the Moròn Optical Space Surveillance system, a telescope that detects and tracks earth-orbiting objects in deep space.
