A Coast Guard aircrew placed a navigational aid on a jetty Wednesday near the Barnegat Lighthouse State Park in Barnegat Light, N.J., to replace an aid that was knocked down during Hurricane Sandy.

The tower was built and shipped to Coast Guard Air Station Atlantic City, N.J., where it was flown to the jetty via an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter and aircrew from Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City, N.C., and set up by Aids to Navigation Team Cape May, N.J.
