171st Water Survival Training

Capt. Daniel Totsch, a pilot with the 171st Air Refueling Squadron, right, prepares to be hoisted out of the water while in a sling with U.S. Coast Guard rescue swimmer AST3 Robin Pietschmann from Coast Guard Air Station Detroit. The 171st ARS conducted water survival training in the pool of L’Anse Cruese North High School, near Selfridge Air National Guard Base, Mich., Oct. 16, 2012. Since Air Force air crews operate in a worldwide environment, they must train for every contingency scenario, including the possibility of a downed aircraft in an ocean or lake. The 171st flies the KC-135 Stratotanker, which can carry approximately 50 passengers. (Air National Guard photo by TSgt. Robert Hanet)
