Air Patrol Grounded

Colorado's Civil Air Patrol is grounded indefinitely for lack of training exercises and trained personnel.

The order, which came down Thursday, grounds all 15 planes ... barring them from flying missions including search and rescue.

The National Air Patrol Command says it's not convinced the patrol can safely perform its missions.

The grounding will remain in effect until there is a plan of action outlining what steps will be taken to correct the problems.
