Video: Icebreaker rescue exercise

The U.S. Coast Guard cutter Healy as seen from a helicopter during a July 14 search and rescue exercise in Arctic waters. The 420’x82’x29’3” Healy, one of only two operational U.S. icebreakers, is on a scientific research mission this summer, at a time when renewed attention is focused on America’s Arctic maritime needs. A bill in Congress would create a fund to build six new heavy icebreakers. U.S. Coast Guard video by Petty Officer 2nd Class Grant DeVuyst.
