About 1:30 that afternoon I saw the CG helo heading to the CG base and said to myself: "I hope it's just a training mission". Most of the time that's all it is but that one was for real. The skipper a classmate of mine, Ricky Shatford. Older brother of Bobby who was lost aboard the Andrea Gail "The Perfect Storm". A CG Falcon jet dropped an emergency radio to them. They finally managed to open the case as soon as the helo arrived! Good thing they didn't need it in a hurry!

All were fine,Rick the next day tried to organize an effort to locate the vessel for a salvage effort. The last report had the pilot house awash and drifting.
