USCG Rescue Swimmer Training

USCG Rescue Swimmer Training

Postby GBloore on Wed 03 Feb 2010, 7:47 pm

I had the great opportunity to shoot with the USCG when they were doing some rescue swimmer and basket training. Although the pictures tell a portion of the story, being on a boat going 20 knots and a helo 15-20 feet over your head dropping a man onto the deck is quite a rush.

Those guys are amazing.

I hope you enjoy.

Cracking set there Glenn. I get the impression that it is a very cramped space to work in/from the helicopter.
"Nice pics mate" comments only! No criticism please.

Equipment: Camera, Lens, Goretex Y fronts.
