EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014: U.S. Customs and Border Protection

Fred Harl and Carmelo Turdo U.S. Customs and Border Protection, part of the Department of Homeland Security, had a significant presence at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014.  They were not patrolling the airport per se, but brought some aircraft and watercraft for exhibit.  A unique and impressive watercraft, a 40ft. Sea Hunter interceptor, was on display near a Cessna Citation 550 aerial surveillance aircraft.  An Airbus As-350 patrol helicopter was part of an indoor exhibit, and as seen in a previous post, the Bombardier DHC-8 maritime patrol aircraft was available in Boing Plaza throughout the week.
