Colorado National Guard assists US Coast Guard in daring helicopter recovery

Colorado Army National Guard Master Sgt. Greg Clancy and Sgt. 1st Class Brett Meredith work together to secure specialized rigging to a sling point on a Coast Guard MH-60T Jayhawk helicopter that crashed March 3, 2010, approximately 50 miles east of Salt Lake City, Utah. The Colorado National Guard successfully recovered the boom and the 15,700-pound fuselage in a three-hour, high-altitude salvage operation using a CH-47 Chinook helicopter and a specialized 150-foot-long remote-control cable.
