The training vessel ANNE S PIERCE shwon in this photo departing St. John's July 30, 2010 for training exercises.
Built in 1982 as a scallop dragger, she is now used as a training vessel for the Marine Institute. The vessel was contracted by the Transporation Safety Board to conduct trawls in the debris field of Swiss Air Flight 111.
Two days before I took this photo the vessel rescued 5 people about a mile off St. John's, Newfoundland after their pleasure craft capsized.
