Tons of hardware has come through Oklahoma and Texas on their way to Beaumont. Let me see if I can dig up some numbers from what was noted.

Through Tulsa, OK, Jan 5, 2019:
UH-60: 20459.
AH-64E: 73168, 73171, 73174, +2.

Through Addison, TX, Jan 4, 2019:
CH-47F: 14-08168, 15-08466, 15-08197, 15-08466, 16-08198.

Not noted by myself. With other words not sure if these are part of this deployment but those stopovers for fuel are somewhat unusual.

At the time, ARC Endurance is berthed in Beaumont. So likely this is the ship to follow. On the Arc website, there’s no info on this ships routing unfortunately.

For some clarity, is it already known when the 4 CAB helis return and if they will go through Eindhoven, or any other airport?

I don't know what you've read, but according the press conference held in the port of Antwerp the 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division would return via Bremerhaven. 4th Combat Aviation Brigade would return via Rotterdam and Thessaloniki.

I understand the confusion caused by the press release. I think however Jeroen is right though as the article doesn't mention anything about the 4th CAB, it solely mentions the movement of the 1st CAB.

“All outgoing equipment will be transported by rail. Aircraft from Germany and Poland will fly to the port of Bremerhaven, Germany.”

That’s what’s in this press release also

Which in my opinion could relate to the 1st CAB returning to CONUS via Bremerhaven. But we will see.

According to ADS-B several 4th CAB choppers (maily CH-47F, H/UH-60M) have been seen flying from Ansbach to Wiesbaden in their anticipated move to Rotterdam and making room for the 1st CAB. Good chance they will remain there this weekend.

Was this done before with the 10th returning to CONUS?
