SH-60B Seahawk

A Search and Rescue (SAR) swimmer prepares to jump from an SH-60B “Seahawk” helicopter assigned to the “Saberhawks” of Light Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron Four Seven (HSL-47), as another SAR swimmer waits in the water during the routine training exercise. The “Seahawk” is a twin-engine helicopter used aboard cruisers, destroyers, and frigates for anti-submarine warfare, search and rescue, drug interdiction, anti-ship warfare, cargo lift, and special warfare operations. SAR swimmers provide naval units the ability to rescue downed aviators or mariners in distress at a moment’s notice. (U.S. Navy photo by Photographer’s Mate Airman Rebecca Moat)
