CAMP BASTION, AFGHANISTAN
An HH-60G Pave Hawk from the 26th Expeditionary Rescue Squadron sits ready to respond to an alert call on the ramp at Camp Bastion, Afghanistan, Nov. 29. Crews are on standby around-the-clock to provide personnel recovery capabilities with medical evacuation operations in Afghanistan's Regional Command Southwest. The Pave Hawk is a highly modified version of the Black Hawk helicopter, which features specialized rescue mission equipment, including a hoist capable of lifting a 600-pound load from a hover height of 200 feet. The Pave Hawk helicopter aircrews are teamed with Air Force pararescuemen and Combat Rescue Officers. Together they are the only Defense Department elite combat forces specifically organized, trained, equipped and postured to conduct full-spectrum personnel recovery to include conventional and unconventional combat rescue operations.
