The very first mission of Scott Field was to train pilots and mechanics.  At first they used Standard Trainers, and then the Curtiss JN-4D “Jenny.” Flight training in these early aircraft, made of wood, fabric, and wire, could be very dangerous.  Students injured in even minor accidents could face a long walk, or if in luck a long drive to the nearest medical treatment facility. The crash crews were formed to first get the personnel to safety, and then bring back damaged parts of the aircraft.
