Hi Patrick,

Thanks gents!
On the left side of 03-05384 and 03-05403 there were no markings.
In the photo of JPS you can see 03-5403 has two vertical stripes under the rotor head. If I understand it right, these are markings of 12 CAB (apart from the badge on the nose they often carry), right? And the square, triangle and circle are for the individual campanies, as Edwin has just confirmed.
Cheers,

Ah I see, the markings were so fain't I didn't even notice they were markings at all. In that case 03-05384 carries those too.

Two more small additions to the list of Jurgen:
jurgen wrote: UH-60L 05-27055 [703215]
UH-60L 98-26812 [702505]
These both had an 0-prefix.


Furthermore, at least five UH-60Ls carried in rather small black capitals a name beneath the first two side windows (on the left side):

92-26458 something that looks like NEBRASKA ?
94-26587 REEK
95-26596 RAMIREZ
98-26812 GORZYNSKI
99-26830 something that looks like JOAREZ ?

Anyone who is able to read the two unsure names on his photos? Thanks in advance!

Greetz,

ARC Endurance arrived in Savannah on Sunday. They started unloading the helicopters Monday morning and by this morning they were all on the dock and the ship had left. It looked like the first few were getting ready to fly back to Hunter later today
