GOSHEN — The U.S. Coast Guard will be giving a rescue demonstration during Rotors ‘N’ Ribs helicopter fly-in at Goshen Municipal Airport Saturday. The fly-in, which will include a Vietnam-era Huey museum along with medical helicopters from all of the regional hospitals, will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. A classic car show will also take place during the event. The public is invited. The Coast Guard crew are helicopter Hospital Specialist Oscar Villegas, flight mechanic Bill Morrow, flight commander Lt. Robert Wright and co-pilot Lt. Dan Schrader. The four-men are the crew for Saturday’s fly-in. The short-range rescue helicopter is based out of Traverse City, Mich., and has an area of operation of all of Lake Michigan, Lake Superior and upper Lake Huron. The crew provides search and rescue plus Homeland Security duties. There is a 24 hour seven day a week duty standing crew, which is always ready to respond. There are normally four crew members, but that can change with the operation, Lt. Wright said. Villegas was traveling with the crew for the fly-in, but normally the team would include a rescue diver, Wright explained.
