PATRICK AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- Loadmastsers with the 920th Rescue Wing inspect two RAMZ packs (Rigged Alternate Method Zodiac) in the back of a wing HC-130P/N King aircraft prior to a search-and-rescue mission. The packs each contain an inflatable Zodiac boat, an oxygen tank to inflate the boat, an outboard motor for the boat and medical equipment. When a survivor is spotted in the ocean, the RAMZ are pushed from the rear of the aircraft to parachute into the sea below. A team of pararescuemen follow, and once they’ve parachuted into the ocean, they assemble the RAMZ and use it to reach and rescue the survivor.
