USCG Eurocopter MH-65C Dolphin

@ San Francisco, CA

October 2016

Under the watchful gaze of a San Francisco Fire Department fireboat, this MH-65C Dolphin is at show center performing a water rescue demonstration during the Fleet Week airshow.   This is one of six helicopters painted with retro colors to celebrate 25 years of service with the USCG and one of nine Dolphins stationed at CG Air Station San Francisco.  The Dolphin was selected by the United States Coast Guard in 1979 as its new short range recovery air-sea rescue helicopter.  Nikon D500 w/80-400mm, processing with Aperture.
