CSAR men

Recommended Posts

Last night, an Spanish Air Force SAR Super Puma Helicopter went down over sea during an exercise after a catastrophic electrical malfunction while rehearsing a recovery. The crew of 5 were veterans, having deployed together in Afghanistan as part of HELISAF, an Spanish Air Force detachment for MEDEVAC and CSAR. One of the pararescuemen was hanging from the hoist when the lights went off and the bird went down, and survived by releasing the cable, falling to the sea apart from the crash. Once recovered, he took part in the search of his crewmates the following 24 hours, when the helicopter wreckage was located and the crew pronounced dead. All those at risk of being lost in the sea can be glad they have men like these looking after them
