Alaska Air Guard rescue trains in Homer waters

An HC-130 Hercules from the 211th Rescue Squadron drops signal flares in the inner bay of Homer, Alaska, as part of rescue water training Sept. 30, 2015. The 210th, 211th and 212th Rescue Squadrons of the Alaska Air Guard’s 176th Wing trained on water rescue tactics Sept. 30 to Oct. 1. The wing’s "rescue triad" performed both day and night missions including personnel jumps and cargo drops on a moving target, flying night water operations, visual search for casualties and drop zone control for safety and situation management.
