We’re back in the middle of Opilio crab season on the Bering Sea. We have a rescue mission to catch up with, some well needed repairs and a Captain blows up.
Coast Guard Copter 6035
When last we left the latest Coast Guard rescue mission, they were flying into terrible head winds with low gas and a fisherman having seizures. They were flying into Cold Bay, which was much further than St Paul. Since the concern was so great with the fuel situation, they decide to turn around the bird from it’s present course and head out to St Paul. They get back safely, as does the patient. Ignoring the order to go to Cold Bay may have saved their lives.
