Baltimore 11/16/21 C-12 or MC-12?

This guy popped in this afternoon. He wasnt showing under the adsb mil filter and all lists say hes a C-12V...

I'm inclined to think hes a MC-12 variant belonging to 224th MI BN as it came out of Savannah Area and utilized the SHADY 04 callsign.

Thanks!
The Entrance to the old Cement Facility has been closed my last few visits so I parked there.

No info on the show unfortunately.

VFA-211 operates F/A-18E these days.
Also, can you please re-check AG-102 and AG-103, as the serials are not valid (well, they are, but one is an MV-22 and the other a C-40)
Thanks Andy,

AG-102 / 166427
AG-103 is actually AG-104 / 166655

Dropped into NAS Oceana the other day as the weather was forcasted for no clouds and southwest winds which are prime for Runway 23 Ops. In addition due to the runway at NAS Norfolk being closed the E-2 & C-2 Units are flying out of Oceana as well as a few other places I believe. First bird to arrive...
