Lake Rawlings in Brunswick County was the scene last week for the sinking of “Blackhawk Down,” a decommissioned Blackhawk helicopter that has been donated to the popular driving spot for use as a scuba attraction. Under the leadership of Commander Dave Givey, the U.S. Navy carried out the mission with the help of crews that tethered, lifted and then sank the airship frame to the bottom of Lake Rawlings. A crowd of Brunswick County citizens came out to witness this event; guests included the mayor of Lawrenceville and the executive director of the Brunswick Chamber of Commerce, among other notables. Two Navy Sea Stallions (Sisnosky 53 helicopters) participated in the mission, one for the lift and the other for back-up/documentation. Commander Dave Givey is shown (photo above) with Errol Duplessis, President/CEO of Lake Rawlings, as the Blackhawk is prepped for sinking.
