Rare boat-to-boat transfer executed on the high seas
A small rescue boat is seen approaching the USNS Invincible in the Persian Gulf with Invincible mission commander Capt. Paul A. Karsten III aboard. Karsten, a member of the 22nd Surveillance Squadron at the Air Force Technical Applications Center, Patrick Air Force Base, Florida, was transferred to the ship after the current mission commander was redeployed on emergency leave.
