N226G night-stopped at KSAV last night, departed this afternoon. I think it went to KBTV

Nice catch, N226G had not been seen since 27dec2017.. 99-6143 Arrived at Eglin at 6sep ~02:30utc (5sep 21:30lt) from the Middle-East via Rota(?) so that fits with a change to N226G at its homebase for a flight arriving the 6th at Savannah in the evening...

99-6143 was noted at Stuttgart on 21-1-2019 with 13 windows in the front part of the fuselage.

Some pics of this visit at : https://www.strforum.de/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=15152

An extra, long, thin, antenna has now been installed on the front fuselage, also visible here in Dec 2018: https://www.flickr.com/photos/highbrass ... 4451438830

I guess N226G will have the same antenna the first time it will show up again..

These pics seem the first pics online since its visit to Greenville-Major 6/1/2018 ~8/8/2018. McGuire's 02-4452 has been there ever since 29/5/2018 !

I saw one of the white 757s at Greenville TX this morning which I couldn’t read. It was in good condition so presumably just arrived, or just completed, rework. Any ideas please?

Andy, i checked all current known C32B's including Comco at ADSB, and they all are at other locations then KGVT.
Can't find any recent info on N903TB, this was reported as sold, and didn't check the C32A's as yours was a white one.
Hope someone else can help you with a better result.
Pieter,

I would guess 02-4452; A white one with just the flag, no roundel or US.A.F. titles? It flew to Greenville 29/5/2018 and has no mode-S history since. Since then the other McGuire-C32B, 00-9001, has mostly been doing local TERRA training-flights, and only a handful of missions far away....certainly less than usual. I guess they want one ready for a real emergency/continguency.

Such a long stay (250+ days now) does not seem unusual, 99-6143 was at Greenville for 215 days in 2018 and 00-9001 was there for 167 days in 2017. I think 98-6006 was there for at least 130 days in 2016 but I only have data for the last half of that year. Anyway, time for this one to get back to work..

Reg. N903TB indeed cancelled mar-2018, last flight acc FlightAware was a local flight returning to Greenville in sep-2017. This one had different colours, PW engines and winglets.

And indeed N226G now has the same additional antenna on top of the front fuselage....so more proof it is the same aircraft. No radar history since 9/2018 and it now appeared on 25/2/2019 18hrs after the almost daily flights of 99-6143 suddenly stopped. It might have made an invisible jump from Eglin to nearby Mobile.

02-5001 (N610G this time) must be at Greenville-Majors now for already a month so that one might get the antenna as well. 02-4452 Hasn't left there either for over 9 months now.

Edit: 02-4452 active again after ~290 days at Greenville. Pics at BUD (Flickr) don't show any external changes.
