Kyle, sorry… I just saw this. I shot only stills on that exercise and know nothing about any video footage. Check with the USCG re: any video they may have in their archive, or contact the local tv news divisions to see if they covered the event and might have the raw footage.
The boat ride was very rough and it was all I could do to hang on for dear life that day. I didn’t really get a chance to chat up the video shooters also present, so I don’t know who all was there.
I did have a brief conversation with your father and remember him well.
I submitted this question in the ASK me anything link, and Im sorry for the repetition. I have a question regarding an article of yours from March 25th, 2010 on gCaptain.com. The “SONS 2010 – Spill of National Significance Exercise in Portland, Maine; Day One” article. I am wondering if there is any chance that you have the interview footage with Commander Thomas Jones (seen in a picture on the article) or know of anywhere I might be able to find the it. I saw it a few months ago and I can’t find it anywhere. He’s my father and he recently passed. Thank you, Kyle Jones
