US Coast Guard bids Farewell to the Falcon Jet

Published on Sep 25, 2014
This week marked the end of an era for Coast Guard aviation. After 32 years of service to the nation, the last HU-25 Falcon, the only jet to ever be a part of the service's operational air fleet, was retired in Corpus Christi, Texas. The Falcon played a significant role in search and rescue as well as counter drug missions and was a critical asset during the first Gulf War.
