Coast Guard Video: The Coast Guard offloaded more than 40,000 pounds of cocaine worth an estimated $500 million from cutter Sherman here April 23, 2007, seized by the crew in three busts near Central America in February and March.
The offload will include approximately 38,000 pounds of cocaine seized in the largest cocaine bust in maritime history.
The Ecuadorian-flagged fishing vessel Don Juan K was approached in the Pacific Ocean Feb. 19 off the coast of Mexico while allegedly offloading cocaine into "go-fast" (cigarette-style boat) boats. The fishing vessel's crew apparently set fire to Don Juan K in an attempt to destroy the evidence and flee in the go-fasts. Sherman's crew stopped the go-fasts and recovered about 900 pounds of cocaine as Don Juan K sank. The 14 crew members are being processed for further legal action.
The 330-foot Panamanian-flagged motor vessel Gatun was interdicted in the Pacific Ocean Mar. 18 off the coast of Panama while heading north toward the United States. Sherman's crew stopped and boarded the vessel and found 765 bales of cocaine weighing approximately 38,000 pounds in two shipping containers. Gatun was escorted back to Panama and its 14 crew members processed for further legal action.
Sherman's crew stopped and boarded a small stateless go-fast in the Pacific Ocean Mar. 25 off the coast of Panama following a short chase, in which, the go-fast attempted to flee at a high rate of speed. Approximately 2000 pounds of cocaine was found aboard the go-fast and its four crew members were processed for further legal action.
The Coast Guard works in close coordination with Joint Interagency Task Force South, U.S. Attorney's office, Panama Express South, DEA, FBI, Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and Customs and Border Protection, as well as the Departments of Justice, State and Homeland Security on counter drug operations in the Pacific Ocean near Central and South America. These drug smuggling routes are some of the most active, yielding roughly 70% of the cocaine seized annually by the Coast Guard.
The Coast Guard has kept about two million pounds of cocaine from reaching America's streets since 1973.

OK... We Admit It, We're BIG Fans!
Most of the world has seen him fly -- but often in the guise of some other person... whether it be James Bond or The Phantom. The man behind the stick for some of aero-movie-dom's most famous scenes is none other than JW "Corkey" Fornof... one of the best pilots in the biz and a helluva nice guy. Better yet, he claims to be ANN's biggest fan... and with that particular approbation (one he hasn't been bashful about voicing -- Thanks!), it seemed only natural that he become the subject of an Aero-TV feature.
Fornof is more than James Bond's 'stand-in pilot.' Corkey is a living/flying legend... for all the right reasons. Corkey flew with his father, J.W. "Bill" Fornof, in a world famous two ship air show with matching bronze Bearcats for a number of years (until Bill's tragic loss in 1971). Their airshow business was based in Houma and involvced routines built around the flying of the T6, Mustang and his favorite warbird, the rotund but formidable Bearcat. He has over 17,000 hours in over 287 different types of aircraft and has worked as a test pilot, corporate pilot, and formed the first civilian jet demonstration team. He is a member of the Screen Actors Guild and the Motion Picture Pilots Association -- among others. He has planned, organized and flown some of the most thrilling aviation stunts in movies -- movies with immediately familiar names -- like License to Kill, Face Off, Moonraker, The Phantom, or Six Days and Seven Nights. And to add to these distinctions, he's flown for over 100 commercials and even done his thing on MTV.
These days, though, Corkey is living a love affair while extolling the virtues of the little sporty two place plane that will not die... Roy Lopresti's exquisite "Fury." Corkey loves this thing, noting that, "The LoPrestiFury flies like a little fighter. It does everything my Mustang would do except 500 kts... This is one sweet ride. Roy LoPresti was right on when he designed this plane. The Fury is perfect for aerobatics or cross country flying".
The Lopresti gang knew what they were doing when they drafted Corkey to be the Aerial Ambassador for their dream-plane. The Lopresti camp rightly notes that, "If you're going to show off a fast, sexy, high performance aircraft, it helps to have a secret agent as your pilot. The Fury possesses the thrilling excitement of air combat or an aerobatic WWII fighter. It's precision and perfection allows smooth rolls and figure 8s. One can glide cross-country in this leather-seated beauty listening to tunes of your choice through the Bluetooth Headset and 'Intuition' Ipod system."
So, for now, Corkey tours the aviation world with the Fury, stopping at air shows and aviation establishments all over the country -- and taking on the occasional film job. The Fury program benefits immensely from his demonstrations and spokesmanship... while demonstrating the charms of the single engine, retractable two seat sport aircraft designed by LoPresti Speed Merchants and destined for serial production. Roy's dream lives on, courtesy of his son, Curt, who has is realizing his father's dream by pushing to manufacture and market the Fury in the not too distant future. This 222 mph airplane sports a bubble canopy, sticks, economical operating costs, aerobatic performance and a sweet soul that offers excellent handling. ANN and Aero-TV look forward to meeting the first of the new generation of Fury owner/pilots -- ASAP.

Queen's Night in Amsterdam started with a BBQ house party, then a bike ride to the port for the main event of the night, two ships and 8 decks of electronic music. Fvibes
Some Nautical Tales covers the adventures and experiences of Captain Wilbur H. Vantine, as he worked his way up from Ordinary Seaman and sailed as Ship Master on tramo freighters in the United States Merchant Marine. Along the way he was able to “see the world” at a very interesting time in world affairs. During WWII, he served on two ships in the war zones of the southwest Pacific and on another in the North Atlantic to the United Kingdom. He obtained his first command in 1951 at age twenty-six. While sailing as Ship Master, he did difficult navigation among icebergs in the far north; had his ship breaking up and losing three of its four lifeboats in a “super” storm, was confined with his crew on a Liberty ship, in ballast, during a winter-time crossing of the North Atlantic, with a killer virus on board, sailed to Korea before, during and after the Korean War, took action to minimize damage from an un-avoidable collision and directed actions to separate the two ships which were connected by their anchor chains, made an ocean crossing with growing cracks in the main deck threatening to cause his ship to break-up, steamed transpacific with a cargo of coal undergoing spontaneous combustion, had his ship to boarded and crew attacked by a large and angry mob in Yugoslavia, had a shifting cargo of army tanks threatening to knock out the sides of his ship during a storm, and had unique interaction with both ship and shore personalities. This book was authored during Captain Vantine’s 79th and 80th years, referring to notes and records that were made at the time of the events. It is all based on actual experiences. The numerous photographs were taken by the author, except where noted otherwise.

On March 25, 2012, while the new Disney Fantasy cruise ship was docked at Castaway Cay during her Inaugural preview cruise, the Disney Dream sailed by the island giving passengers on board both ships and on Castaway Cay a glimpse at the sister ships together.
The Dream pulled up to Castaway Cay and passed by the Fantasy's bow before sailing away. This video shows the Dream arriving from Serenity Bay, the two ships meeting from the island tram, and a closer look from the port and on board.
