Press Release follows: Available in high definition. CAMP DENALI, Alaska— The Alaska Air National Guard rescued an injured male hiker on Flattop Mountain Tuesday evening following a request from Alaska State Troopers to assist with the transport of the patient to a local hospital. The 11th Rescue Coordination Center was contacted at 6:36 p.m. to assist with the mission after Anchorage Fire Department personnel and Troopers were unable to transport the patient safely down the popular hiking trail, and the Alaska State Troopers helicopter was unable to land at the site. "We were requested because the angle of terrain prevented Helo 1 from landing at that location," said Master Sgt. Kenneth Bellamy, 11th Air Force Rescue Coordination Center controller. "The patient was suffering a knee injury, but was stable with medics from AFD on scene, so we requested Alaska Air National Guard support." The RCC immediately alerted the Alaska Air National Guard's 210th and 212th Rescue Squadrons, and following a situation brief, they launched a HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopter with a six-person crew at 8:10 p.m. Guardian Angels from the 210th and 212th Rescue Squadrons arrived on scene minutes later and promptly began operations to hoist the hiker onto the HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopter before transporting him to Providence Alaska Medical Center for treatment. The Alaska Air National Guard's 210th and 212th Rescue Squadrons were awarded one save for this mission.

  • Dust, dirt, Airmen and Marines ran through multiple strenuous real-world scenarios during Exercise Mojave Viper to prepare for their deployment together at Twenty Mine Palms, Calif., March 16. 
"Its really great to get this opportunity to train with the Marines, to have the opportunity to see how they work, and for them to see how we will work in a joint environment before we deploy," said 1st Lt. Ben Leonard, HH-60G Pave Hawk combat search and rescue helicopter pilot with the 210th Rescue Squadron, Alaska Air National Guard. 
This May, the 210th, 211th and 212th rescue squadrons and the 3rd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment based out of Camp Lejeune, N.C., will be deploying to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. 
This training is necessary to not only provide a muscle memory for the Guardian Angel teams but also to strengthen the bond between sister services. Also available in high definition
