A lift for the crew of HMS Bounty


Coast Guard helicopter 6031 rescues fourteen members of the crew of HMS Bounty Monday morning (10-29-12) after the replica tall ship succumbed to hurricane Sandy. According to news reports, the ship was attempting to evade the storm when it was overcome — along with much of the eastern seaboard — by the hurricane’s rapid increase in intensity. Air Station Elizabeth City, NC, gets the credit for this level-headed work 90 miles off the coast of Hatteras, in 18-foot seas. Unfortunately, two members of the Bounty’s crew remain missing.
