Primary comms will be Discord - standby for details.

Intelligence Update: No passengers are believed to be injured, local fishing vessels and several USCG & US Naval assets are moving victims to the north coast. No maritime vessel is large enough to ferry a substantial enough amount to a hospital on the south of the island. A triage unit has been established near the makeshift airfield and passengers are being processed 24 hours a day.

USCG Tasking: Your task is to evacuate as many passengers as possible as quickly as possible to Honolulu Int. Airport, where they will be then transported to the relevant medical and recuperation areas.
Equipment: C130J - equipped to hold 74 Passengers, inbound Weight to crisis should be set at 0 plus required fuel. Outbound approx 7000kgs. These may change should you be required to ferry equipment to or from the crisis zone.

This event is still going ahead! Sign up now to take part in the Exercise dubbed “Operation Overwatch” to see how your USCG-IF operates! Very much looking forward to this event, a lot of preparation and work has gone into it already.

Imagine taking a C130, landing it where no plane should land, without a runway, lowering the ramp, loading passengers, raising the ramp and taking off again to take them to safety. Think it sounds easy? Come and join us for the challenge. As one of our pilots said…“It was scary and extremely satisfying at the same time!”. We are always looking for good pilots to join us as we patrol the borders of the United States!

I have participated in a similar operations like this too.

Anyone with an interest in trying out with USCG, this is really a great opportunity. You take off on a runway and land somewhere you dont normally do in IF. It can be frustrating but when it is successful again and again, thats where the satisfaction of being with USCG happens.

At times, many other members are online and you find yourself in a formation to the pick up point. Lots of people in the same livery doing the same thing.

It is a practical teamwork scenario and you arnt expected to do it alone. If you are even the least bit interested, then i encourage you to try.

You get that amazing feeling when you really see a bunch of people flying with you, landing on a open field and trying to evac as many peoplr as possible.

Discord is a slight bit empty but do join if you are an IFC member looking to try USCG. this time, we invite you guys to be apart of our missions ^^

Thank you all for the kind words, like I keep saying to you - I have spent a lot of time and put in plenty of effort designing this exercise, right down to simulated News articles. Hopefully we make this a great event and plenty of pilots decide to try their skills landing a difficult handling aircraft on grass and not cement!!

If you want a challenge, this is the only event for you!

Wow first time for almost 2 years to see a event like this. Last time I had an event like this was on a FNF and it was about a KASE impossible landing. And after I never heard any events interesting. Now the moment I read this mission had already hyped me, this can be super fun and I bet it will.
