Air Show – VA Beach – U.S. Coast Guard Helicopter Search & Rescue Demo

What a treat to watch the Coast Guard pilot put the helicopter into a hover 50 feet over the surface of the Atlantic Ocean (at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront Airshow).

Once in a stable location he lowered the simulated victim into the water by cable. The rescue swimmer was then lowered into the water, retrieved the victim and the two were raised via the cable safely back into the helicopter. Pretty Amazing! Enjoy the photos!
