After Blaze was treated, Silver insisted she rest more before she got up to walk. Once Blaze felt better, they found the others who had gotten together to say thanks and goodbye to everyone at the base. The soldiers were even kind enough to give them all helicopter rides back to Tails’s workshop. Shadow thought about simply using his chaos control, but after the soldiers’ offer he didn’t want to bother teleporting every single person to their own home. And Sonic perhaps would have ran but it turns out the base was centered in the middle of the ocean.
“Thanks guys! I’m glad we got to help you out!” Tails waved bye along with most the others while at a good distance from the helicopters. After exiting them, they had been pushed back by the forcible winds created by the spinning propellers, but it didn’t stop them from giving their respectful farewells.
