#ThrowbackThursday #OTD 2012 In the early morning hours while caught in the impact zone of Hurricane Sandy more than 90 miles off the coast of Hatteras, North Carolina, HMS Bounty lost power and eventually capsized spilling her 16 crew members in to the sea.

Aircrew aboard C-130 and MH-60 aircraft were launched from Air Station Elizabeth City, NC and braved the hurricane conditions to rescue 14 crew members who had made it into life rafts. Another crew member was later recovered unresponsive and the Captain was never found.

Rear Admiral Norman B. Hall > United States Coast Guard > All

TODAY IN COAST GUARD AVIATION HISTORY – 28 OCTOBER 1916 – BIRTH OF THE AERONAUTICAL ENGINEERING PROGRAM: Second Lieutenant Norman B. Hall was ordered to the Curtiss Aeroplane and Motor Company to study aircraft engineering and construction. Curtiss experimented with flying boat designs. In addition, Hall was developing instrumentation and studying strength of materials used in the latest aircraft manufacturing methods. He would eventually become the service’s first Aviation Engineering Officer. #RedRaggers

Lieutenant Norman B. Hall was Elmer Stone’s USCGC ONONDAGA shipmate. He also experienced his first flight at the Curtiss flight school and the two junior officers converted ONONDAGA’s skipper, Commander Benjamin Chiswell CGA ‘96 (1896), to their cause. By early 1916, Coast Guard Commandant Ellsworth Bertholf, CGA ‘89 (1889) had also become a believer and sent Stone and Second Lieutenant Charles E. Sugden, CGA ‘09 (1909) to the U.S. Navy’s new flight school in Pensacola, Florida. Lt. Hall was assigned to Curtiss’s New York aircraft factory to study design, construction and maintenance.

This week we had privilege to train the dedicated and talented staff of the Montana Department of Transportation on their new SONAR EMILY system for bridge inspection.
We are specialised in face masks and can supply 3 and 4 ply disposable face masks in accordance with the FDA USA. Inbox for details.
Kind of a weird question for the group: How many agencies that cover open water, have windmills in their response areas ? And what type of problems do they give you with your RADAR on your boats ? We currently have them on shore, within 200 feet, but there is a proposal to install them on Lake Erie and Im wondering if they create problems for your agencies. Thanks !
We share the seas with Beluga whales. Good throwing arm helps.
