Description

Large 16 inch MH-60 with NAS Fallon markings. Each model is carved from wood and hand painted to provide a piece you’ll love!

Since 1972 the base has had its own search and rescue team. Originally named Desert Angels and later renamed Longhorns, the team’s mission is to provide SAR support for visiting Carrier Air Groups and other NAS Fallon tenant commands. The Longhorns flew the Bell HH-1N from 1972-2009 and the Sikorsky SH-60F from 2009-2011. The team currently flies the Sikorsky MH-60S. The Longhorns frequently support civilian search, rescue and medical evacuation efforts in conjunction with local law enforcement, medical and search and rescue agencies.
