U.S. Coast Guard VTOL!
The BA609 tiltrotor is very nearly the same size and displacement as the XV-15 Tiltrotor concept demonstrator. In May, 1999, a tiltrotor compatibility test was demonstrated on board a 270 foot USCG cutter, underway south of Key West, Florida.

Biggest Maritime Coke Bust Ever
May 15 - Pacific Ocean

The Coast Guard announced that on May 3, they busted the 152-ft Belize-flagged, Russian-crewed 'fishing vessel' Svesda Maru 1,500 miles south of San Diego. The vessel had drawn suspicion because it didn't have much fishing equipment or fish. What it did have was 13 tons of coke - about million worth - making it the biggest maritime bust ever.

It's common knowledge that drug interdiction efforts in the Caribbean have encouraged smugglers to head to the Eastern Pacific. Since October 1, the Coasties have seized 110,000 pounds of coke at sea, 80% of it in the Eastern Pacific. This is 30% more than they seized in the 12 months before. It's also why the Coast Guard is boarding more cruising boats in the Eastern Pacific, and why you want to keep your nose clean.
