Awesome footage from the NAS Whidbey Island SAR unit doing what it does best. Using the MH-60S to perform search and rescue for the Navy and Washington State agencies.

Tasked to be the first responder for the aircraft and personnel stationed at NAS Whidbey Island, Washington, and to support Washington State agencies in case of emergencies, medical evacuations and search and rescue activities, NAS Whidbey Island SAR is a one of a kind rescue unit, equipped with the MH-60S “Knighthawk” helicopters.

The team, consisting of three helicopters, 10 pilots, 10 rescue aircrewmen and 3 SAR Medical Technicians (SMT’s) is “the premier in Navy Search and Rescue:” personnel of NASWI are highly trained in day and night both overwater and mountain rescue including helicopter rappel and hoist, and mountain landing.

The repelling into a mountain crevasse has the keaster pucker factor for sure.

Plus, I think this video shows off my state pretty well.
