Coast Guard Retires Last HU-25 Falcon

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.
