Master Cpl. Denis Abazovic (right), a search and rescue technician from 424 Transport and Rescue Squadron, sits next to Saroomie Manik, a local Civil Air Search and Rescue Association spotter onboard a CC-130H Hercules aircraft in Resolute Bay. The two were participating in a Canadian Armed Forces search-and-rescue exercise involving bundle drops, parachuting and spotter training last week near Resolute Bay, Pond Inlet, and Sanirajak. Spotters are the search team’s “eyes in the sky,” responsible for visually locating the targets of a search operation. (Photo courtesy of Capt.. Graeme Scott / Canadian Armed Forces).
