EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016: Airshow Performers - U.S. Customs and Border Protection

Fred Harl and Carmelo Turdo through Sunday, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Sikorsky UH-60 Blackhawk flew maneuvers during the airshows.  Featured here is a demonstration of pursuit and apprehension of unidentified driver.  Along with the flight crew, the K9 handlers and their charges also interacted with visitors.  As mentioned in a previous story, EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016 played host to two aircraft from the Department of Homeland Security's U.S. Customs and Border Protection Office of Air and Marine - Lockheed P-3B Orion and Sikorsky UH-60 Blackhawk.  The aircraft were part of a large contingent of assets on display (most of them in the U.S. government exhibit hangar that will be featured in a future post) that included other aircraft and patrol boats.
