Three HH-60 helicopters of the 920th

Caribbean, 03 December 1997 — The Air Force Reserve's HH-60 helicopters from the 920th Rescue Group out of Patrick Air Force Base, Florida, search the Caribbean for downed aircraft and retrieves critically ill sailors from ships hundreds of miles out in the Atlantic. The unit's crews fly in weather conditions which often test man and machine or at night using night-vision technology. The 920th completes arduous, over-water rescues which frequently require the unit's HH-60 helicopters to be mid-air refueled by their HC-130 tanker aircraft — a capability not shared with Coast Guard helicopters.
