563rd RQG Airmen provide lifesaving rescue

A U.S. Air Force Airman assigned to the 563rd Rescue Group observes an HH-60G Pave Hawk receive aerial refueling over the Pacific Ocean off the coast of San Diego, Nov. 15, 2022. The 563rd RQG Airmen were dispatched to a cruise ship roughly 500 miles off the coast of San Diego, California to extract a man who was in critical condition from a ruptured appendix. Before executing the mission, two HC-130J Combat King IIs and crew departed Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Arizona, to Naval Air Station North Island, California for a crew change and fuel. The patient was successfully transferred to Scripps Hospital in San Diego. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman William Turnbull)
