Coast Guard Transfers Fourth HC-130J to Air Station Kodiak


CGNR 2006, an HC-130J Super Hercules long range surveillance aircraft outfitted with the Minotaur Mission System Suite, arrived at Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak, Alaska, June 3, 2019. It is the fourth HC-130J with Minotaur to be stationed there. The HC-130J features more advanced engines and propellers than the HC-130H model, and the Minotaur mission system provides increased capabilities for use of the sensors, radar and intelligence-gathering equipment installed on the aircraft.
