I can confirm: AH-64E 16-03085 and 14-01017 and UH-60M 20813

Yesterday seen on the left side from the runway i saw 2 groups of 3 choppers standing.
First group was UH-60 20576, 26436, 26480, second group was UH-60 20687 and i believe a UH-60 ended on 21 and a unknown AH-64E parked next to the 21. Who can help me with the tailnumbers from those 2??

Greetings,
Eric

Thanks guys, processed your logs in original list. Eric, are you 100% about 20576 and 20687? Not seen these reported before. Where exactly were they parked yesterday?

If I combine all the previous messages in this thread, plus the video on https://www.facebook.com/1stAirCavalryB ... 127289615/ showing the final wave departing on Sunday late-afternoon (probably around 17:45) I come to the following totals:

1. Already present Saturday-morning: 2x AH-64 / 6x H-60 = 8 (seen by DJMikey)

2. Saturday
Wave 1: 4x AH-64 / 4x H-60 / 2x CH-47 = 10 (seen by DJMikey)
Wave 2: 1x AH-64 / 6x UH-60 = 7 (seen by DJMikey arriving around 15:45)
Wave 3: 4x AH-64 / 3x UH-60 / 3x CH-47 = 10 (seen by Tony late afternoon)
Total on Saturday: 27

3. Sunday:
Wave 1: 4x AH-64 / 2x CH-47 = 6 (seen departing at Zeebrugge)
Wave 2: 2x AH-64 / 6x H-60 = 8 (seen departing at Zeebrugge and seen arriving by myself at Chievres around 12:05)
Wave 3: 3x AH-64 / 2x CH-47 = 5 (seen departing at Zeebrugge and seen arriving by myself at Chievres around 14:07)
Wave 4: 10x H-60 / 3x CH-47 = 13 (seen departing at Zeebrugge and seen arriving by myself at Chievres around 15:50)
Wave 5: 1x AH-64 / 11x UH-60 = 12 seen at the video on Facebook; comment being "Check out the final aircraft leaving Zeebrugge yesterday for Chievres Air Base!"
Total on Sunday: 44


GRAND TOTAL: 79 being 21x AH-64 46x UH-60 and 12x CH-47

Please correct me if I am wrong.

Rgds, Hans
