Helicopter mission changes as rescue tempo slows

NEW ORLEANS -- An Air Force pararescueman helps load evacuees aboard an HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopter from the 38th Rescue Squadron at Moody Air Force Base, Ga. The unit is part of the deployed 347th Expeditionary Airlift Group in Jackson, Miss. The helicopter took the evacuees to the New Orleans airport from where they will go to a relocation center somewhere in the United States. Helicopter aircrews have been rescuing people since the day after Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast. (U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt. Efrain Gonzalez)
