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.

Like this moose in the woods, many website users (well, most actually) freeze in their tracks hoping not to be seen during our fund drives.
