Coast Guard Over Kuwait by George Schoenberger

In response to the Iraqi action of firing oil wells and pumping stations in Kuwait, two HU-25A Falcon jets from Air Station Cape Cod, equipped with Aireye technology, which precisely locates and records oil as it floats on water], departed for Saudi Arabia. The Falcons mapped over 40,000 square miles in theatre and located every drop of oil on the water. This was used to produce a daily updated surface analysis of the location, condition and drift projections of the oil. The Aviation Detachment was deployed for 84 days, flew 427 flight hours and maintained an aircraft readiness rate of over 96 percent.
