Reserve Airmen support SpaceX Falcon Heavy milestone launch

Reserve Airmen from the 920th Rescue Wing support the successful launch of SpaceX's Falcon 9 Heavy launch Feb. 7, 2018. Before the majority of Space Coast rocket launches, aviator Airmen from the 920th RQW's 301st Rescue Squadron take off in HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopters from Patrick Air Force Base, Fla., hours prior to the launch to provide aerial surveillance and clear the launch hazard area, an area considered potentially unsafe for marine traffic in the event of a launch anomaly.
