Always Ready: U.S. Coast Guard

Aug 28, 2018

  The US Coast Guard flight crews stationed on Cape Cod are at the ready 24 / 7 to respond to vessels in distress from New York City to the border of Canada. In this special re-broadcast, we talk with Coast Guard pilots, flight mechanics and rescue swimmers about their work, and tag along on a helicopter training flight to see them in action. We also hear the story of a woman who was rescued 300 miles offshore by a Coast Guard Helicopter crew in Hurricane Grace.
