It's been a while since the news talked about CAP and subs in the same article.

The Connecticut Wing participated in a training exercise, "Operation Bird Dog," to demonstrate Civil Air Patrol capabilities in aerial anti-terrorism force protection support at Naval Base New London in Groton.

The exercise was also designed to train the U.S. Navy's new submarine commanders through an opposing force simulated event.

Connecticut Wing aircrew members and mission base staff took part in the exercise May 5.

Five CAP planes were involved in the exercise, which featured three distinct command tasks:

Submarine escort
 
Aircraft violation of the submarine's control area
 
Observation and documentation.

Considering they were "escorting" the subs, that wouldn't make much sense would it?

By "escorting" I take that to mean that they are making the subs easier to spot
by just looking for the plane circling overhead?

Also, I think it's at least cricket to ask the question as to how much
of this "essential" mission's planning time was spent lining up to replicate the poster shot...

I hope we didn't sink that one... we might lose our 501 status and become a 10 USC Chapter 13 organization...

On the flip side, that AAR would make for fantastic reading...

Sink it with what? Hard to drop anything but harsh language from one of our airplanes.
