Re: Coast Guard flying the Bangladesh?
Look closely at the ship. All US markings have been removed, in addition to lots of radars and the Phalanx gun. The Coasties have been decommissioning some of the old High Endurance Cutters and selling (or giving) them to other (typically third world) nations for some time.
I wonder what is taking the Bangladeshis so long to take the ship home, 'cause it's been there for well over a month. But I bet the crew are in no hurry to get back home. This is probably the best duty any of them will ever have.
