The other three South Dakota F-16s are: 88-0471, 88-0476 and 89-2005.

Ten 'OH' Ohio F-16s flew in the morning on 10th February. They were: 89-2051, 89-2085, 89-2109, 89-2114, 89-2128, 89-2129, 90-0701, 90-0702, 90-0706 and 90-0731

One other addition to the earlier excellent list: there's a sixth 'EL' B-1B. Couldn't read the serial as it's marked "37 BS" y/bk

'FF' F-22As 04-4065 and 04-4070 were also seen, but from where they appeared I think they are in use with one of the based units.

Doubtful.

RF20-1 ends on the 14th. Most RF airplanes can be expected to depart on or around that date.

The other two OHs are 89-2082 and 89-2112/112FS (colour tail). They are doing Green Flag (RENO [am] and SHARK [pm] callsigns).

The South Dakota F-16s appear to be flying with Weapon School (WOLF callsigns), or possibly 24th TASS? (or both??!)

F-22A 04-4073/FF was flying with the locals on Wednesday.

F-16C 89-2075/AZ appeared to be flying with the 24th TASS.

F-16Ds 88-0174/HL (4th FS markings) and 89-2176/HL (421st FS markings) were flying together yesterday, using COBRA callsigns (16th WPS?)

There is also a JZ F-15 parked with the locals.

Thank you,

Yeah I have heard the dates will be June 17 - July 1

The more I hear the dates the more it would seem to be accurate.
Just don't want to book flights and find out I am wrong

On 6-2 four USMC helicopters were seen on the ramp.
2x AH-1Z and 2x UH-1Y.
Anyone for one or more ID's (BuNo or codes) of these?
