This is not the new Coast Guard maritime patrol aircraft


C-27J -- "SPARTAN"
Originally uploaded by Tidewater Muse.
Deepwater recently delivered the 2nd HC-144 to the Coast Guard. The HC-144 (& I wish I knew what we are going to call it) is made in Spain by EADS.

Question: Why are we buying from the European aircraft consortium when right here in the US of A a great plane (the C-27J Spartan), which would more than meet the Coast Guard' s needs, is built?

Any answers out there?
