Manatee transport

Crewmembers from Air Station Miami and the Miami Seaquarium help offload a manatee from a C-130 Hercules aircraft at Air Station Miami. The wayward manatee was captured by New Jersey Fish and Wildlife officers near Newark, N.J., and transported by Coast Guard personnel from Air Station Atlantic City, N.J., to Miami where the animal remained at the Sequarium until veterinarians felt it was fit for release.
