    Air defense exercise involving Civil Air Patrol rescheduled

    January 30, 2013

    LOUISIANA -- A Super Bowl air defense exercise, in which military fighter pilots and other federal agencies prepare to protect the skies from unwanted aerial intrusion near the Mercedes-Benz Superdome Sunday, has been pushed back. Fog that blanketed the area early Tuesday was the apparent cause for the Air Force to cancel the exercise, “Falcon Virgo 13-Super Bowl.” A spokesman at Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida said only that weather caused the exercise to be postponed and rescheduled for 7 a.m. today. The FAA, FBI, Customs and Border Protection, Civil Air Patrol, the 601st Air and Space Operations Center and NORAD’s Western Air Defense Sector are involved in the exercise.
