Coast Guard Drops Blood to Oosterdam

The US Coast Guard flew 1,036 miles from Hawaii on Sunday to drop urgently needed blood to Holland America's Oosterdam which was two days away from its destination of Lahaina (Maui).

In this video, shot form the back of the HC-130 Hercules aircraft during the drop, note how close the packages are going to land to the waiting tenders from the ship.
