The Coasties Stop In for Lunch

In the leisure and sport aviation world, a "$100 hamburger" refers to the practice of flying to a different airport than your home for lunch. . .in other words, a justification to hop into your single engine toy and go fly. So when this U.S. Coast Guard HC-130H from Sacramento stopped in at lunchtime on Thursday and parked at Mojave's Voyager Restaurant (a long way from any coast), it got me wondering: with four engines, was this a $400 hamburger?

They were bringing some FBI people up to play paintball in one of the aircraft fuselages in the back 40.
