The men were flown to the RAF Valley base on the Welch Island of Anglesey.

The 29-year-old Duke of Cambridge, who is also known as Flight Lt. William Wales, co-piloted the helicopter which rescued two of the formally 8-man crew, which became disabled after it cracked its hull due to an encounter with a huge wave around 2:00 a.m.

One crew member was found dead, while the search is ongoing for five people who have been reported missing. The cargo crew is reported to have been Russian. The 265-foot cargo ship was reportedly carrying 3,000 tons of limestone.

Helicopters appear to have become a common interest for William and his younger brother, 27-year-old Prince Harry, who has been going through helicopter training classes, most recently on a U.S. military base in Ariz.  The younger prince was expected to spend two months in Gila Bend, Ariz., for intensive training.

Harry and a group of around 20 British airmen were being trained to perform a number of extensive and difficult maneuvers as preparation for a tour of duty in Afghanistan.
