This cool photo is ripped from the U.S. Coast Guard’s Flickr photostream. The chopper in question is a Eurocopter MH-65 Dolphin, one of the more common CG helos in action today.
I’ve always had mucho respect for our friends in the Coast Guard. They keep our maritime activities safe, patrol our borders, and save lives. Semper Paratus to any of you Coasties out there, and keep up the good work!
