CAP NRAT reduces Arizona plane crash search area from hundreds of square miles to 100 feet, one survivor

Arizona emergency responders were able to quickly locate a small plane crash site in northern Arizona, thanks to the work of Civil Air Patrol’s volunteer National Radar Analysis Team, Sept. 23, 2021. The NRAT is now up to 13 saves this year which sets their record for number of annual saves over the past 13 years. In 2021, the entire NRAT has volunteered more than 420 hours to support search and rescue missions.
