Capt. Matthew Arnold swims towards a hoist from a UH-1N Iroquois helicopter during a water operations training scenario Oct. 17, 2014, at Long Lake, Washington. As part of the water operations training, Arnold entered the water, waited for the pilot to make several passes to familiarize themselves on approach and hoisting procedures over water. Once in the water and actions were complete, swimmers would communicate to the pilots that they were ready for pick-up using hand signals over their heads. The flight engineer would then hoist the swimmers up from approximately 40 feet. Some pilots were tasked to complete several attempts of ‘helo-casting’ and hoisting to complete their search and rescue certification while others were trainers or used the mission as re-certification.

Capt. Marcus Truman, 336th Training Group combat rescue officer, freefall jumps out of a UH-1N Iroquois helicopter during water operations training scenario Oct. 17, 2014, at Long Lake, Washington. Truman was participating in the scenarios to stay current and proficient on his training as combat rescue officer. Becoming a combat rescue officer entails an extraneous two-phase program that filters officer candidates, solidifying who can withstand high winds, rough seas, extreme weather, mental fatigue and still lead the mission at hand. In 2002, the Combat Rescue Officer program was instated by the Air Force chief of staff, with the vision of having expert leading Airmen in parachuting, personal recovery, diving, resistance during captivity.

Maj. Dee Bochte and Capt. Josiah Hart, 36th Rescue Flight helicopter pilots, look for safe landing zone for freefall swimmers from the 336th Training Group during a water operations training scenario Oct. 17, 2014, at Long Lake, Washington.
