HH-60G 01-26881 is also flying with the locals (MONGOOSE3 28/1), is this one of the rebuilt H-60s? (edit: I'm reliably informed that it is!)

MH-60 'WC51' needs confirmation.

edit 7/2: all updates to the original list highlighted
edit 16/2: '19FS' confirmed and AB300 added
edit 17/2: AB304 and AJ502 added
edit 12/3: BuNos for AB304 and AJ502 added

RAAF 3sq stopped flying the Hornet in December 2017.
The ones noted at Nellis still have 3sq markings.

I am not sure, but think these aircraft are operated by 77sq or 2OCU. Or even split between these units.

Great log! Did you read any of the other HH-60G's flying?

There were a few flying around, with around a dozen in total on the ramp, but the others were all the usual ones.

OK, thanks.

I've listed them with the markings they're carrying. 77 is the squadron listed for the exercise.

According to a post on the Nellis Spotters FB page, 68-8119 was inbound on Friday, but the five that turned up were as listed! (with 68-8105 in the lead, which would suggest that one was pinging as 68-8119??!)

T-38s look to be up again, 70-1954 is showing so that one’s actually correct (assuming it’s actually in that aircraft!)

In the morning of Tuesday 29 January we were at Nellis, viewing the ramps in the morning. We were unable to read of the local based F-22's and F-35's. Anyone who was there that day and can provide me with these numbers? Much appreciated!

Thanks, Maurice.

Just a small remark on the big log (thanks for that). I wonder if the T-38s were flying for the Red Flag. I saw them flying last friday, hours before the Red Flag launch begin. So maybe they were there for another exercise ( Green Flag ???).

Grtz,

R.

In previous Red Flags they've been observed flying with Weapons School in the morning then the Red Flag day mission.

Green Flag is a Close Air Support exercise at Ft Irwin, half way to LA. The ADSB traces showed them up in the Nellis ranges.

But they did not fly with the Red Flag mission that day, only with the Weapons School aircraft, the Draken aircraft and a lot A-10 aircraft (Close Air Support?).

Grtz,
