Don't think so. The four were scheduled to return to NAS Fort Worth and were designated as air spares.

For corretion:

This freq. sequence from the Pilot was the "wrong and not real sequence".

The real sequence:

85-481/TX Trend71
85-467/TX " 72 no mk`s
85-493/TX " 73
85-501/TX " 74
85-472/TX " 75
85-553/TX " 76
