Finally, a wise decision has been reached for seven of the US AF's C-27Js .....

"WASHINGTON — The Pentagon has assigned seven C-27J Spartans to US Special Operations Command (SOCOM), but has not decided the fate of the Air Force’s remaining airlifters.
Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton Carter made the decision on Oct. 28, according to Pentagon spokeswoman Ann Stefanek.
Three airlifters at Pope Air Force Base, N.C., will be transferred to SOCOM by the end of this month, Stefanek said. Four more are in production and are scheduled for delivery directly to SOCOM between December and April 2014."
Hopefully, a similarly rational fate awaits the remaining frames in limbo.

Send the rest to the AKARNG!
There are still guys ticked off they had to give up their Twin Otters for Sherpas.
If not call Casa for some C-235's. They were the preferred Army option anyway and the USCG is already flying them so they wouldn't be orphans. [Edited 2013-11-03 18:28:31]
