A U.S. Air Force HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopter lands during a training competition at the Nevada Test and Training Range, on May 18, 2021. This unusual photo angle is a still captured from a video taken by a camera that appears to be mounted on the Pave Hawk’s aerial refueling probe.

The Pave Hawk is a highly modified version of the Army Black Hawk helicopter which features an upgraded communications and navigation suite, according to the website.

The HH-60G Pave Hawk is the Air Force’s primary combat search and rescue helicopter, used by both special tactics teams and pararescuemen. The HH-60G’s other operational capabilities include civil search and rescue, medical evacuation, disaster response, humanitarian assistance, security cooperation/aviation advisory, NASA space flight support and rescue command and control.
