Some 100-150 spotters were present at Volkel, so your information was clearly highly appreciated Joostmil! Thanks again :-)

More like 200.
I counted at least 130 alone at south side.
Next to those in the landing and at spottersplek.

But great heads-up. Very interseting aircraft, although very boring grey. 8)

Just put 66043 on a “boring grey” aircraft, and it suddenly isn’t that boring anymore

Does anyone know why they use the model name CN235 instead of C-144 just like the USCG?

And can anyone confirm the FY 96? This frame is produced in 2007. So FY 06 is more likely.

Afaik the connumber is supposed to be 176 but hasn't been confirmed, so the build year is not certain. Furthermore the fiscal year is the year of reserving funds, so that could be a lot earlier than the actual production. I agree it is not likely this is 10 years earlier, but these *could* be explanations I think.

Martijn, I can't say for sure, below my thoughts, the 1st AFSOC Cn235 was noted in 1998, 1st USCG HC144A was delivered in 2006. AFAIK all the AFSOC CN235's are still active in the FAA register with a civil contractor Turbo Flight. So could that be the reason why they are CN235's, they are not owned by the USAF and therefore have no C1xx designation?

For the FY, there are more aircraft in the 60xx range, all have been quoted with FY years in several sources, i think none has 100% confirmed. One exception is Cn235 66046 which has been checked by Hans vd V.. The plate stated Customer Serial 96-6046, so not FY, and accepted jul-04.
My theory (based on guessing) is that AFSOC has created a separate range for there aircraft, below what i have. The FY mentioned in various databases seem to originate from the first note, so for instance B707 86005 was first noted in 1997, in that case FY98 is not possible, so they claim it is FY 88.
66002 6002 DHC6
66003 6003 DHC6
86005 6005 B707-320
86006 6006 C-32B  
86008 6008 B707
86022 6022 Ce208B/ U27A
86027 6027 CN235
56039 6039 PC6/B2-H2
66042 6042 Cn235
66043 6043 Cn235
66044 6044 Cn235
66045 6045 Cn235
66046 6046 Cn235
66047 6047 Ce208B/ U27A
66048 6048 Ce208B/ U27A
66049 6049 Cn235-QC
Perhaps admin can create a separate thread to continue this.
