Search and Rescue is one of the most demanding and honorable jobs a helicopter pilot can do. Ricardo Nunes, an ex-SAR pilot for the Portuguese Air Force, has done quite a few of these missions while working for the 751th Squadron of the PoAF.
Search and Rescue is one of the most noble and exciting roles helicopters and their crews are capable of performing. These machines carry their highly trained brave crews through all kinds of weather and dangers to save the lives of strangers. Or, in this case, of colleagues. This is a true story of a training assignment that became a real search and rescue mission after 2 F-18s crash near the Canary Islands, Spain
