Mailport July 2012 Issue

Mailport: July 2012

Caption Clarification

The June 2012 issue of Practical Sailor has a photo of the Coast Guard bark Eagle and a cargo plane, incorrectly called a C-130. The airplane in the photo is a twin turboprop, whereas a C-130 has four engines. (I spent many hours on them as a Flight Surgeon in the U.S. Air Force.) I believe the aircraft in the picture is an HC-144A Ocean Sentry.
