Members of the Alaska Army National Guard moved Isabell, a Sikorsky CH-54B Skycrane, to her final nesting spot in October. Isabell joins several monuments located in the Alaska National Guard Memorial Park on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. The Sikorsky CH-54B Skycrane is famous for setting several records and also using a 5-ton hammer to break through the ice in an attempt to rescue three gray whales during 'Operation Breakthrough' near Point Barrow, Alaska in 1988. It was also featured in the 2012 film 'Big Miracle.' Includes soundbites from Brig. Gen. Mike Bridges, Alaska Army National Guard, commander, and Sgt. Maj. Tim Dungman, 1-207th Aviation, Alaska Army National Guard. Also available in high definition.
