Wouldn't it be nice if they could give the USCG a budget and replace all of the various vintages of H and E models that they have in service.

Doubt it will happen though. They are allways stuck with hand-me-downs for the big boy services.

how is the -130J a 'hand me down' from the other services? the coast guard requested it and they got it. it's going to replace the various vintages of h and e model 130's. if you mean a hand me down because the active duty doesn't want it because it's a piece of junk, then you're right. but since they asked for it i don't see how you can say it's just a hand me down

DuceE50Boom....

I didn't realize that they USCG had requested them....

If they have and are receiving them then GREAT!! I was under the impression that they where going to stick it out with their HC-130E/H models for a while yet.
