Does the state department have a large facility at Patrick AFB?
Please, your comments and observations appreciated.

Patrick AFB is probably just a “base of record” and the aircraft will be stationed overseas.

According to this website:
state.gov/p/inl/rls/rpt/cbj/fy2002/3705.htm

They are used to fight the “War on Drugs” in Columbia.

Thanks everybody.
I’m glad they are being put to good use and not sat in a hangar gathering dust and bird pooh.
Be lucky
