A little update to your log. The serials provided in red were confirmed by myself before I was ushered away by the security guys. Any gaps would be welcomed from this little list of elusive airframes.

A few more for your list , I'll have to check the photos for the remaining CH-53's.
The hanger contained 10 MV-22s , I have all of those too in case anyone has a few codes that they need tying up.
Just to clarify ,after much negotiation with various security agents, PAO etc etc this area was visited including the MV22 hanger. Everything outside was photographed (no photos allowed in the hanger)
166484/GX-21 MV-22B
165847/YS-04 MV-22B
166252/UT-00 CH-53E
164537/UT-09 CH-53E
161261/UT-03 CH-53E
162520/UT-16 CH-53E
161990/UT-17 CH-53E
165846/YS-06 MV-22B NOT 165486

Thank you for posting some additional tie-ups. It is most appreciated. Do you happen to have the serials of CH-53E UT-06 and the CH-53E coded 21 that was parked head on to the static display in front of the Ironhorse hangar?

Best regards,

Dinger.

No luck with 21 even though I have several shots of it , the tail is folded obscuring one side and a rotor doing the same on the other !
cheers, Mark

Excellent. Thank you for responding. I just need to tie up pesky old 21 now.
