Coast Guardsmen at Air Station Detroit were treated to a Christmas Eve surprise when they awoke Dec. 24, 2011.

When the duty aircrew stepped outside to prepare for an early-morning training flight they were greeted with a fresh blanket of sparkling snow and a striking sunrise.  

“With no snow scheduled in the forecast it was a pleasant surprise for us on Christmas Eve,” said Lt. Tasha Hood, one of the Christmas Eve duty pilots.
