    I recently re-viewed this episode, and in the trivia section is mention of a Reader's Digest article which has some similarities to the story. Check it out:

    Love the review Mr. Mike! I like this one and one of the reasons is because we see how the Coast Guard conducts Search and Rescue.

    Do we know the C-130 was an H model? I think the Alaska ANG was flying E models during the 1970s but I could be completely wrong
