As Combat Raider continues, participants conducted personnel recovery training Nov. 16, 2016, just north of Belle Fourche, SD., in the Powder River Training Complex. The event started with a show-of-force by two B-1 Bombers from Ellsworth Air Force Base guided by joint tactical controllers from the 5th Air Support Operations Squadron, Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash. Once the area was clear, a helicopter from the South Dakota National Guard’s 189th Aviation Regiment came to evacuate the simulated causalities.
