Thread: PA-12 to the rescue!

    Default PA-12 to the rescue!

    Great job!! Without a doubt saved his life, another night in the conditions would probably have done him in. Three private fixed wing and a helicopter plus a lot of snowmachiners, makes me really proud to live in a place that so many folks would volunteer to help someone out.

    No Trooper or Coast Guard aviation support which is a bummer cause they have FLIR. Next time we will have to add "TV Camera Crew' to SAR checklist, so they will come down and help. Cause it sure seems like, No TV time, no Help from those two.

    The winner isn't the person with the most gold when they die, but rather, the person with the most stories.

    A lot better resolution than the guy who disappeared in the same area a couple-three years ago. In that case the victim had no radio or phone gear that worked so nobody knew he was in trouble for a almost a week.

    Great Story of the Community Coming Together

    thanks for the link

    would be really interesting to hear the survival story if anyone sees it published or told
    Ten Hours in that little raft off the AK peninsula, blowin' NW 60, in November.... "the Power of Life and Death is in the Tongue," and Yes, God is Good !
