After the flood
An HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopter from the Alaska Air National Guard's 176th Wing refuels over a flooded plain near Galveston, Texas on Sept. 12, 2008. The two Pave Hawks in the photo were deployed to the Gulf Coast region Sept. 1 to perform expected search-and-rescue missions in the wake of Hurricane Gustav. They remained on-station to aid rescue efforts relating to hurricanes Hannah and Ike (pictured). Alaska Air National Guard photo by TSgt. Sean Mitchell.
