Patrick, we visited the day after and there was also an F-5N on static, 761585/AF15.
Did you forget to log it, or was it not there on Saturday?

Also on the far side was CH-47D N948CH (90-00202), but maybe not visible from the static?

Re: LOG SW USA Trip day 3 (16-10-2022)

-F/A-18s 163993 and 164058 were seen near the NASA area. Have these been transferred (and got a NASA registration) or are these just stored as I saw mentioned somewhere, maybe for future use by NASA? Possibly for spares use? I remember seeing a photo of the D-model without ejection seats. As of tod...

N683DN UH-60A ex USAr 82-23683, plus another one was being prepped in the painting booth.
If both were in the same glossy scheme, the other was most likely N685DN which we noted here in October.

Piet Luijken wrote: 29 Dec 2022, 10:55 Yeah it looked flyable to me! It was parked next to the hangar outside the operational area but otherwise fine.
Looking at Google however it is still in the same spot for some time so maybe not active?
Well, if it had at least rotorblades then i would say its back active. We saw it without. :D
