Titanic Flight Diverted to Aid Sinking Vessel

A U.S. Coast Guard HC-130J rescue plane is being diverted from their Titanic commemoration flight to aid a sinking French vessel approximately 1,300 miles east of Boston, Saturday.

The rescue plane crew, from Air Station Elizabeth City, N.C., was in St. Johns, Newfoundland, in preparations for a ceremony to drop five wreaths over the Titanic resting site.

First Coast Guard District Command Center watchstanders, based out of Boston, were notified at 7:30 a.m. by Rescue Coordination Center Gris Nez, in Normandy, France, that the 40-foot sailing vessel UBU 7′s rudder was leaking, but the boat was still buoyant. There are three persons aboard.

Ironic, but appropriate.

Here's an update:

First Coast Guard District Command Center watchstanders, based out of Boston, were notified at 7:30 a.m. by Rescue Coordination Center Gris Nez, in Normandy, France, that the 40-foot sailing vessel UBU 7′s rudder was leaking, but the boat was still buoyant.

The Spanish fishing vessel Generoso Tercero was identified by the Super Hercules’ aircrew during the aircraft’s transit from St. John’s, Newfoundland, and was diverted to rescue the sailors. All three sailors are safely aboard Generoso Tercero with no reported injuries.

The Moscow Sea, a member of the Automated Mutual-Assistance Vessel Rescue System, is en route to meet with the fishing vessel and transfer the sailors aboard.
