Pedro at Sea Gull

Pedro, the search and rescue helicopter from MCAS Cherry Point, landed at Sea Gull on Monday afternoon. The Marines gave tours of the helicopter and joined us for patriotic dinner in the Mess Hall! In the Mess Hall, they described the mission of the search and rescue team and gave advice to campers and staff about working hard and accomplishing goals.
Pedro and crew ended their Sea Gull visit with an enthusiastic fly-by, demonstrating typical rescue techniques.

  1. My last year at Seafarer (1996) this same event was to take place. Apparently, the pilot was unsure of his exact landing location because he ended up on the archery range. The rest of the staff and I plus the campers that were hanging about got our own private helicopter tour from the very good looking Marines! Great memories!
