Coast Guard C-27J Successfully Delivers Rescue Gear During Training Mission

Crew from the Coast Guard’s HC-27J Asset Project Office in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, where the service’s first regenerated C-27J medium range surveillance aircraft is based, complete four aerial deliveries of rescue gear to a Coast Guard Auxiliary vessel conducting a training mission in Albemarle Sound May 8, 2015. The deliveries from CG-2714 were part of an effort to validate operational search and rescue procedures for the aircraft and complete upgrade qualification training for the crew. A second aircraft is undergoing maintenance at the APO, and two more are in the regeneration process that will bring them out of long-term preservation at the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group facility located at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona. The Coast Guard plans to operate a fleet of 14 HC-27J aircraft. U.S. Coast Guard photo.
