Mystic & Condor,

040429-N-7949W-003 Naval Air Station North Island, Calif. (Apr. 29, 2004) - The Deep Submergence Rescue Vehicle Mystic (DSRV 1) is carefully loaded onto a Russian-built An-124 Condor (Antonov) by Sailors assigned to the U.S. Navy's Deep Submergence Unit (DSU) and the aircraft's crew. The An-124 is owned and operated by the Volga-Dnepr Group based in Russia. The Mystic and 13 members of her crew are being flown to the Republic of Korea to participate in Exercise Pacific Reach. The exercise improves submarine rescue capabilities and also fosters a familiarization between different nations with submarine rescue techniques.
