HONOLULU, Hawaii - The crew of an HC-130 Hercules airplane from U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Barbers Point drop a dewatering pump to a simulated vessel in distress during a mass rescue operation off Waianae, Hawaii, July 24, 2019. The exercise, part of a larger weeklong international search and rescue workshop, simulated a commercial inter-island ferry taking on water and sinking during a 70-mile transit between islands with around 80 people onboard.
