On 24.3.1920 the Coast Guard's first air station was established at Morehead City,NC, when the service took over the abandoned naval air station and borrowed a few Curtiss HS-2L flying-boats and possibly one or two Aeromarine Model 40's from the US Navy. However, funds were not provided to support the operation and the station was closed on 1.7.1921.
