Erwin from these pictures I can recognise:
H-60 294
HH-60M 20680
Can not find the 20682.

I was wondering about 'your' UH-60L 96-26294.
If you look at this picture https://www.facebook.com/JacksonvillePo ... 83/?type=3 you see the choppers from the 101CAB before loading in Jacksonville Port.
You can count 49 Blackhawks, which is the usual number in a deployment.
In the picture you can see 15 HH-60Ms, leaving 34 (usually 8 UH-60Ls and 26 UH-60Ms).
However, if you look at the picture closely you see all Blackhawks have the folding tails and UH-60Ls do not have this mechanism, as fas as I know.
So could this unit be solely equipped With H-60Ms and the 294 perhaps -20294?

For the L model the horizontal stabilizer can be disconnected for transportation.

294 is a UH-60L! You can tell the difference by the engine exhaust (L-model blowing backwards, iso topside as the M-model).

AFAIK, all the H-60's presently in Rotterdam have their stabilisers disconnected and turned upwards.

294 is clearly an L,

another difference is the attachment of the front wheels to the fuselage. With an L it is slightly bigger, more square and less rounded than of the M model. The navigation light on it is at the back end on an L and in the middle on an M.

I stand corrected :wink: Too much (social) distancing apparently blurs the view :roll:

Hi Jurgen,

On the two JAX harbour photographs I think the following are visible:
41 H-60M (of which 15 HH), 8 UH-60L and 24 AH-64 (and 1.5 CH-47 ;-))

The pictures shown on Spotair are not always high res, sometimes they get a bit bigger when you click on them.
Howver, the poster nearly always adds information that pops up when you click on the little 'i' in the top right corner.

rgds,
Erwin

According to ADSB Chinook 14-08162 CH-47F B/6-101 AVN flew from Illesheim to Nancy 1 hour ago, maybe to bring some help for the 2 Apaches?

Yesterday evening at 6pm this Chinook flew 3 traffic patterns at Illesheim.
As far as I know no further arrivals at Illesheim yet till today except the 7 helicopters which arrived late on Monday evening, July 13th.

After spending the morning in Bordeaux for Indian Rafales we went to Cognac. Lot of flying with the locals but silent with US Army. 5 of the 7 helicopters seem to have left with just a HH-60 and an Apache left.

Today the flight are cancelled the Gerdarmes just told us. Bad weather in the east.

Edit 15.38.... just as I wanted to start my engine Ton heard helicopters, the following arrived:
20415
20029
20740 Or 8
20721
20722

I think the Gendarme, who passed us 7 seconds before Ton heard the helicopters and friendly waved us goodbye, was also very surprised.....
