U.S. Coast Guard at Put in Bay Airport

United States Coast Guard Helicopter 6582 out of Detroit completed a series of “touch and go” exercises at Put-in-Bay Airport on Thursday morning.  Helis.com describes the aircraft this way: The Aerospatiale SA366G1 Dauphin was selected by the United States Coast Guard in 1979 as its new short range reuscg_stamp_MH-65Dolphincovery (SRR) air-sea rescue helicopter, replacing the Sikorsky HH-52A Sea Guard.  The Dolphin normally carries a crew of four: pilot, copilot, flight mechanic and rescue swimmer.  On 4 August 2015, a U.S. Postal Service Forever stamp featuring the Dolphin was released to honor the U.S. Coast Guard’s 225th anniversary.
