Episode 177 [Part 1] Wryan Webb US Coast Guard Pilot

Episode Description

In Part 1 of this two-part series, host Jason Quinn of The Real ResQ is joined by Wryan Webb, a United States Coast Guard pilot.

Growing up in the middle of Texas, nowhere near water, Webb found himself wanting to blend his goals of being in aviation, being around water, and working search-and-rescue. With his very first rescue earning him a Coast Guard Commendation Medal for responding to an emergency position indicating radio beacon (EPIRB) from the 40-foot trimaran and its four survivors 60 miles offshore.

We continued our conversation discussing a few more rescues that stood out to him while he was stationed in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. Webb shares a story about two F-18 Hornets that crashed and left four pilots in the water. Other stories include a flight to Bermuda for a rescue that was beyond Bermuda, a submarine that they had to rendezvous with, and a sailboat that was taking on water. Enjoy!
