|On Top for a Pump Drop
The Lockheed Martin HC-130H Hercules long-range
surveillance aircraft flies search and rescue, cargo and personnel
transport, law enforcement and international ice patrol missions for the
U.S. Coast Guard. This Aerocature shows the "Herc" on a Search and
Rescue (SAR) mission with its ramp open delivering a pump by parachute
to a sinking boat. The aircraft is also equipped with a CASPER system,
which includes a chin-mounted turret with camera. (This Aerocature
was created for U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Sacramento.)
Note: Each month a different image from the current calendar year is featured here. To avoid
the gnawing 12-month period of suspense to see all 12 pieces (along with lots of aviation
anniversaries (When did the first pig fly?), incredible trivia (What is Godzilla's "birthday"?),
and outrageous quotes from people that should know better) place your
order for the Aerocatures Calendar now!
