USCGC Polar Sea WAGB-11
A classic example of timing as far as having covers out to a source at the right time...splendid documentation of a MEDIVAC flight from aboard the USCGC Polar Sea... on station 52 miles north of Barrow, Alaska during Operation Arctic West Summer 1982, when a diver is injured. Helo 1370, with Lt. Hessel at the stick, medivacs the diver to Barrow.
