WESTHAMPTON BEACH, N.Y. — It was a clear morning when an Army National Guard crew aboard a Blackhawk helicopter flew above the woods along the edge of the airport here as part of its regular weekend duty. One of the crew members works during the week painting stripes on highways, and another sits behind a desk on Wall Street. Some are New York City firefighters accustomed to springing into action.
They were ready when a routine day of training turned into an emergency mission.
