The Alaska Rescue Coordination Center received a rescue request for a hiker in distress near Glacier Pass in Archangel Valley, Aug. 6. Initial rescue efforts from a civilian component were postponed due to weather. The 176th Wing initiated a launch of rescue crews using information from the hikers, launching an HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopter with a Guardian Angel Team on board, from Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. The Pave Hawk crew safely navigated to the hiking parties’ location where the team provided field care and hoisted the patient into the Pave Hawk, transporting the individual to a Mat-Su area hospital.
