A US Coast Guard C130 has just headed into Whenuapai. I bet they will be typical tourists arriving in the weekend and complaining that nothing is open..... The pics I got were rubbish due to the low cloud and rain, will see if I can tidy one up to post.
Pacific search and rescue leaders are meeting in Auckland (May 22-26) to strengthen search and rescue (SAR) across the region and save lives. ... On Tuesday, Pacific search and rescue capability strategy will be discussed. On Wednesday, from 2.30 pm there will be a dramatic “rescue” off Mechanics Bay simulating a sinking boat firing flares, a US Coastguard C-130 Hercules dropping a life raft, and an Auckland Rescue Helicopter winching a person from the water.
