On October 6th, I read the following aircraft on the ramp at Fort Worth, TX:

(85-1)43(8)/FM F-16C 93FS/AFRC
(85-1)55(2)/FM F-16C 93FS/AFRC
(86-0)264/FM F-16C 93FS/AFRC
(86-0)265/FM F-16C 93FS/AFRC
(86-0)267/FM F-16C 93FS/AFRC
(86-0)323/FM F-16C 93FS/AFRC
(87-0259)/FM F-16C 93FS/AFRC '482OG'
(164952/AB)-410 F/A-18C VMFA-251 dep
(168428)/428 P-8A nb
(168436)/LA-436 P-8A VP-5

A few more 'FM' F-16's were visible. Reportedly, three more VMFA-251 Hornets had taken off a few moments before I arrived.

Hi all,

Some additional evacuees at NAS Fort Worth:

86-0334/FM F-16C 93FS/AFRC
87-0239/FM F-16C 93FS/AFRC
87-0247/FM F-16C 93FS/AFRC
(164964)/406 F/A-18C(N) VMFA-251
(164973)/12 F/A-18C(N) VMFA-251
(164980)/05 F/A-18C(N) VMFA-251

The F/A-18s used callsigns TBOLT51-54; 54 departed to Tucson (TUS). As VMFA-251 is no longer assigned to CVW-1 (replaced by VFA-81), the 'AB' codes appear to be removed (or faintly visible?) and the modex has reverted to two digits. Although these are late-production 'C's and as such have been referred to by one publication as 'C+'s, it is thought the 'C+' only refers to aircraft so modified at Boeing-Cecil.

All P-8As departed back to NAS Jax on 9 October. BuNo 168428 used callsign TALON84 (VP-16).
P-8A 169003 departed as TALON55, 168759 departed as TIGER56, and 168436/37/38/758/62 used MADFX34/22/29/99/84.

Also, E-8s PEACH67 and 69 were noted also on Sunday departing Tinker eastbound possibly to Robins.

Rgds,
SD
