Coast Guard Air Station Traverse City Welcomes Falcon Aircraft Home

Posted: Updated:

A moment in history at the Coast Guard Air Station Traverse City today - as this Coast Guard aircraft came in for a landing - set to be retired and put on display in the city.

The HU-25 Falcon aircraft from Cape Cod came home today, with the Coast Guard, Cherry Capital Airport staff, and the Northwest Regional Airport Commission there to welcome it.

It was flown in by Captain David Throop - former commanding officer at Air Station Traverse City.

The jet is used in the Coast Guard to perform search and rescue, law enforcement, and several other duties.

The Coast Guard and members of the airport commission are thrilled to bring it to Traverse City.

The Falcon will be retired and put on display in the city in the near future.
