Rescue Flight saves stranded camper

FAIRCHILD AIR FORCE BASE, Wash. – A five-man rescue team dispatched in a Uh-1N Huey helicopter from the 36th Rescue Flight here save a stranded man near Mount Daniel, Wash., in the Cascade Mountain Range. The evacuation point was about 140 nautical miles west of Fairchild, and though the landing was “a little tighter than we usually go into,” according to co-pilot Capt. Chris Johnson, the crew successfully teamed with the Kings County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Team from Seattle, Wash., to evacuate the victim to an ambulance headed for Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee, Wash.
