According to Chief Warrant Officer Jonathon Trude, Sector St. Petersburg watchstander, the situation was an outstanding example of how their watchstanders and aircrews worked together to respond to any and all calls for help at sea.

“The ability of watchstanders in St. Petersburg to assess the situation, recognize the proximity of the Serenade and launch the aircraft resulted in a positive outcome.”
