About the Coast Guard helicopter

Thanks to John Skerratt for the photo. From the “in case you wondered too” file, that’s the U.S. Coast Guard helicopter that was looping the west-facing West Seattle shore for a while this past hour or so. It’s currently on its way back to Port Angeles. Earlier, police/fire were checking out a report of possible windsurfers in trouble, but that was debunked last we heard, though the USCG helicopter, and vessel, had already been dispatched.

    On its first pass it was under 300ft and hugging the coastline very tightly, so it had me wondering. Thanks for the information!

Sorry, comment time is over.
