Wes Lowe

After taking some courses at the Ontario College of Art, I began my career in commercial art as a package designer. Since those early days, I have focused my attention on a career as a freelance illustrator, and I still work as an illustrator mostly for Publishers and studios. I have aways enjoyed drawing and painting and I now focus this love on one of my favourite subjects, aviation. I am busy researching and creating new aviation scenes in my studio and will post them once I am pleased with the final painting.

Atlantic Destiny Rescue - by Wesley Lowe

 

 

Atlantic Destiny Rescue
by Wes Lowe

On March 3rd, 2021, the scallop trawler Atlantic Destiny lost power after an engine fire 130 miles off Nova Scotia. The crew sent out a distress call when the ship began to take on water as it wallowed in heavy seas. The Halifax Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre dispatched a CH-149 Cormorant from Greenwood, NS and requested assistance from the US Coast Guard in Maine, which sent two HH-60 Jay Hawk helicopters to assist in the rescue. Working together through the night, the three helicopters and a nearby Canadian Coast Guard ship rescued all 32 crew members before the ship sank the next morning.
