Visitor from the north

We had a visitor from Canada today - this Canada Air Rescue helicopter. It flew into the airport right over the house - it almost sounded as if he was landing on the roof. You can see from the man standing under the tail section how big it is. This looks like a flying bus - safety yellow and all. I wonder just how many people they can carry. They were met by the Coast Guard helicopter below. We think there was a transfer of a patient, but didn't see that part.

Update: The US Coast Guard 'copter wasn't meeting the Canada Air Rescue. Both ships were bringing in men taken from a boat that sank off the coast. 2 are fine, one did not survive. All were transferred to Forks Hospital from the 'copters.
