This is what I noted (from pics):
First 3 HH-60M:
11-20403 last 3 in red cross
12-20499 last 3 in red cross
13-20614 NO last 3

Second wave of 3 (UH-60Ms):
13-20637
07-20050
08-20148

Third wave of 3 UH-60s, immediately behind 2nd wave:
No numbers.., either hidden by hor. stabilizer or straight over my head.

Last wave, UH-60Ms + Apache
11-20379 last 3 in red cross
14-20681 Not sure. NO last 3 in red cross
13-20610 last 3 in red cross
16-03103

Word by the fence was that the second batch of helicopters would start arriving here as from Monday June 17. I can't judge this, time will tell.
I was today at Spang and three H-60s left. According to ADSB 20374 and 20081 were part of thuis flight. I pressume this was the 3rd flight that left Koksijde yesterday. 2nd flight also left Spang today with only 20637 positive identified according to ADSB. Both flights went via Erfurt to Dresden before entering Poland, Just like first flight did yesterday (to Erfurt, today to Poland). 4th flight from yesterday made it to Illesheim yesterday.

Hello

Does anybody have the serials on the 03 H60's that departed on 06/06 that departed right after the 2nd wave?

Today (11/06) another flight departed EBFN (ADSB: R20507 was the lead), does anybody know which ones departed in this wave?

I just saw 03 H60's and 01 H64 (ADSB: H60 08-20160 was the lead) flying back to EBFN, has anyone an idea about the other serials of this formation? (R20160 was not in the log of 03/06-05/06? Has anyone noted this one at EBFN?
At the moment H60s 10-20298 and 98-26812 are pinging on the ground aswell.

Another 02 H60's arrived at EBFN for a stop before heading to Zeebrugge. ADSB: lead is HAZE76 11-20412
This means that at the moment 05 H60's and 01 H64 have passed by EBFN before going back to CONUS.

Yesterday there were 03 (?) waves departing EBFN for ETAD. First one around 0920 (ADSB: lead R20507, does anyone know how many flew in this wave and have the serials?), followed by the second around 1530 (ADSB: lead R26812, together with 02 other H60's; has anyone the serials?) and a third one arround 1626 consisting of just 01 H60: R20298

Those were UH-60M 11-20419 and 11-20399. So the registration on ADS-B is not correct

Isn't it 26812, 26510 and 26525 (last one was just on ADSB flying in Poland)?

So this means that there are currently still 07 at EBFN?

Indeed: 6 UH-60's and 2 AH-64E's (longbow versions) I still need to figure out which blackhawks are still at Koksijde.
