Hikers were added to the first category in Table III in 1964, which helps to account for the increase in that category and the decrease in the “Other” category. Proportionally more man-hours are involved in downed- aircraft searches than in other types of search and rescue operations, as a comparison of man-hours in Table I with number of aircraft operations in the above table indicates.
