Help requested on some BuNo's USN Hornets....

Post by ATCSpooky »

Hello All,

Since the USN Scramble database seems to be a little bit behind I am looking for some recent sightnings of the following codes to fill in the blank buno's:

F/A18E: NG-301 and the 200 from VX-31
F/A18F: NA-112; NA-401; NG-105; NG-113; NH-102; NH-110 and XE-260

Many thanks!

Marcel

Maybe the database is running behind due to a lack of input from the people using it????
May I advise everyone to not only take info from these databases but also send/provide info for these??

When logs get posted on the forum are these also used for the database?
If yes I'm fine otherwise...... ;)

Similar to the whole ADS-B versus eyeball discussion, may I encourage everyone to note the difference in your reports between eyeballed serials and those taken from databases or other www sources?

Sorry I can't be of help... would have gladly visited China Lake for the F111B alone! 8)
