National Air Crew of the Year award for Virginia Helicopter Crew

Virginia Helicopter crew honored for winter search and rescue mission. They were honored after they helped rescue two boys lost in woods on a frigid day in January. On the snowy afternoon of Jan. 25, the crew hovered over deep woods in Spotsylvania County, searching for 5- and 10-year-old brothers, who wandered off with their dog in temperatures in the low 20s.  With just minutes of daylight left, and running low on fuel, the three men aboard Fairfax One spotted clues to the kids and led a ground team to save the boys.
