Thanks, y’all. It’s sad the reason why they’re here, though; the coast is still suffering greatly, but the Coast Guard (and all branches), as well as Operation Airdrop, have been fantastic. RDU is the base for all these ops.

Great pic. Have seen the devastation down there in pics...unbelievable!
Saw a pic of an ocean front house we've rented for more than 20 yrs.'--it was still standing but its neighbors were not!

Wow. Yeah, it’s amazing what house can go untouched and the one next to it is obliterated. But it’s not over yet... all rge rivers are cresting still. Luckily, one path was cleared to Wilmington, 17 is open from Jacksonville on down.

Thank you for a great photo of a great aircraft, as well as the informative comment.
We spent many hours in these aircraft flying between Pretoria, South Africa and the Angolan border to prevent a terrorist group supported by Cubans and Russians from invading our country.

There is a photo of this same aircraft listed as tail# N2005. I recently photographed tail #2010 and ran into the same problem listing the USCG aircraft on Flight Aware....USCG does not use the"N"...but my entry autocorrected to add an "N"...fyi
