Nice log there!

Definitely NE602 for 169865? This was reported as NE601 in November?

Regards

Got to the Saturday show early (05;30 local) and was able to avoid SOME of the confusion with traffic and parking. Plenty of comments on other sites regarding that cluster, so I'll skip right to the show itself-it was outstanding!! Nice weather, good layout for statics and almost non-stop flying.

Great list Jurgen

I can confirm the following (some additional) aircraft, all seen behind the control tower
H-65 San Francisco Det Point Mugu
6531 (not visible form static)
6538 (also flew)

NP-3D
150521/341 (tail visible from static)

P-3C
160293/301 (tail not visible from static)
163291/304 (tail visible from static)

The H-65 on static had a badge from det. Point Mugu, but wasn't attached to this detachment during the airshow.

From the the carpark preserved E-2C 161097/NK-600 could be seen.

I have listed this one:
F-16CM 93-0532 4 CC-167 AF USAF ADS act 'Thunderbirds'-c/s United States

But it was also present as a Shaw at Nellis the same week, so highly unlikely.
I do have it as 0532 in my notes (read off from the ejection seat), so any suggestions as to which one it really is are appreciated.

Thanks for thinking with me, but I had read this one as the unmarked one.
