White House PIX: 1st fully painted Marine One VH-92 landing

First Images Of New VH-92 Marine One Helicopter Landing On White House Lawn

A developmental VH-92A helicopter conducts landing and take-off testing at the White House South Lawn on Sep. 22, 2018.

The aircraft is the first of six test aircraft developed under the Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) phase,
which includes the design, certification and testing of a replacement helicopter to support the presidential world-wide vertical-lift mission.

The landing and take-offs were part of a comprehensive test plan designed to ensure the aircraft meets all operational specifications.
In all, 23 VH-92s will replace the current fleet of 11 VH-3Ds and 8 VH-60Ns, 21 of which will fly the President around
and follow him or her nearly anywhere they go across the nation and abroad
(yes, a pair of 'White Tops' are airlifted everywhere the President goes even if they are not used as primary transportation)
or support HMX-1's training needs.

The two remaining helicopters will stay a NAS Patuxent River and will be used for ongoing developmental initiatives.
The VH-92 is slated to reach initial operating capability in 2019 and fully replace the existing White Tops by 2023.

The fielding schedule also reports (next to 11 VH-60) one UH-60N in service with HMX-1. There is no UH-60N in the Scramble database. Anyone a clue on this helicopter? Is it ex VH/SH/MH-60, or ex Us army??

I've never seen the UH-60N... Wonder if its kept at PAX River. I have seen, photographed, (and scramble published) the UH-3D.

I'll have to keep a watch for it, or ask one of the HMX guys next time I see them.
