Joseph Pawlik, captain of the barge aground on Penfield Reef, off Fairfield, CT, is
lowered to safety from a Sikorsky R-5 helicopter piloted by Jimmy Viner, the
company chief pilot, assisted by Capt. Jack Beighle of the Army Air Force. The
Nov. 29, 1945 hoist rescue was the precursor to many thousands of missions to come.
