EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014: U.S. Coast Guard MH-65D Dolphin Rescue Demonstration

Fred Harl and Carmelo Turdo AirVenture Oshkosh 2014 airshows featured several U.S. military aircraft demonstrations, and one was provided by U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Traverse City, MI.  A crew from the "Guardians of the Great Lakes" flew an MH-65D Dolphin Short Range Recovery (SRR) Helicopter on a simulated sea rescue mission in front of the afternoon airshow audience.  As can be seen in the following sequence, a crewman operated the winch as his partner poses as the rescue victim.  The flight crew was "photographer friendly," flying low and slow the whole time.  A special The Aero Experience Team thank you to those U.S. Coast Guard rescue teams that are ready to launch at a moment's notice to come to our aid in a maritime emergency.
