NAES Lakehurst (KNEL)

Recent photo's show some preserved a/c restored and in new schemes. Might be interesting for those that keep track. I've added some extra info on the GIA a/c as well, but it also raises questions. Additional info is most welcome. A-7B 154443/AD206 VFA-174mks Oct18 ex-NJ406 VA-25mks (repainted Oct17)...

Re: NAS North Island MIL 2018

There's two ways to tie-up depot codes with BuNo's, read the BuNo from the a/c itself or get it from the paperwork/infobord.

Re: NAS North Island MIL 2018

Hi DJ, MH-60s: SA12, SA13, SA615, SA617 & TG31. During a base visit in March 615 and 617 were both seen, carrying no letter code. These were 163792 and 164842 respectively. They were parked between many others that did carry code SA-xx, and 615 also carried the badge of HC-3, so these should be you...

Re: NAF El Centro Apr2018

Thanks guys. I'll dig further on the Harriers now the unit is known. I've been told there were 3 Puma's and 4 Chinooks in total for the RAF deployment. Thanks for the MH60 K2G. WC54 used to be 166364 too in 2017. Went most likely into depot late last year when it was seen u/m and now rts again as WC...

One more question from 08/03/20118. Whilst driving by Miramar I was overflown by F/A-18C SH-143 of VMFAT-101. There is a photo of it online on the USS Abraham Lincoln on 18/03/2018 but frustratingly the Buno can't be read. Can anyone tell me the number of this one, please? Thank very much 163993 - ...
