Coast Guard Arrival

A United States Coast Guard helicopter arrived at my local airport the other day. You can’t miss this machine as it thunders in on final approach. After touchdown, the pilot taxied to the temporary parking area, snaking between a few small fixed wing craft. Here he is in action.

If you’re at sea and have a serious problem, it’s good to know that professionals like these guys have the ability to pull your sorry a$$ out of the drink. This helicopter had a crew of four, a bunch of affable guys willing to talk to the local gawkers impressed by the equipment. They lingered for a while before moving on to the next stop. Thankfully, there were no emergencies for them to chase, just a regular day of practice.
