Default Actually, HH60 Pave Hawk

Those are actually HH-60 Pave Hawk - you can tell by the refueling boom. They are used by USAF special forces, primarily PJ's for personnel recovery in hostile combat zones. There used to be a group based in upstate NY that would do training on the lake 15 years ago or so. From what I heard, the commanding officer's family had a place on the lake, and he got to decide where training locations would take place. So naturally, he chose the lake! They would drop rescue swimmers and rubber rafts, and "assault" islands at night to practice, and then the helos would stay at Laconia during the day. Maybe they pulled the old locations out of the file to try them out again!
