Turtles Take to the Air

Sea turtles spend most of their lives in the ocean. So it was an unusual sight to see 20 of these remarkable creatures take flight—in the care of U.S. Coast Guard pilots, that is.

Several media outlets braved the rain to see the turtles off on their momentous journey from drizzly Hanscomb Air Force Base to balmy Florida, where they will continue their recovery at SeaWorld Orlando.

In case you missed it, check out some local news stories about this collaborative mission!
