On the 9th of July the last helicopters of a total of 154 (*) departed Koksijde towards the East.

I'm still looking for some information:
- does anyone have the serial of the first AH64E that landed at Koksije en-route back to CONUS? It arrived together with blackhawks 20160, 20170 and 20505 on the 11th of June arround 1515L.
- on the 25th of June R20412 was noted on ADSB heading for Koksijde. Was this a formation of multiple helicopters or was it just a sole one? (*) And if it was a flight: does anyone have the other serials?

Indeed, I meant a total of 154 that passed through Koksije both on their way to the East and back to CONUS.

So you suggest 88 were going back to CONUS and westbound?

Looks a little bit to much for me

17-03158

See here; https://www.scramble.nl/community/messa ... &start=165

From this list it seems some are still to come, so if you have any updates on those, pls do let me know.
Missing confirmations are;

UH-60L: 94-26555 (l/n 23/6 @ Illesheim)
UH-60M: 10-20241, 10-20281 (l/n 23/6 @ Illesheim)
AH-64E: 14-01015 (possibly via Eindhoven 24/6!? to Zeebrugge +1) 17-03133 (l/n 23 & 27/6 @ Illesheim), 17-03160 (l/n 23/6 @ Illesheim, serial tbc), 18-03203 (l/n 23/6 @ Illesheim)

Could well be this had the other missing Blackhawks with him. Those 3 were noted on the 23rd by a group at Illesheim, but during my visit on the 27th, they were gone.

This leaves us still with the Apaches! 14-01015 is very likely one of the 2 missing Apaches that were noted at Eindhoven on the 24th, coming from Poland. But no other is missing from the list coming from that area of operations, as the other missing ones were all noted at Illesheim. Anyone got a clue?

R20241 flight
UH-60Ms 10-20241, 11-20412, 11-20429, 10-20281
In the topic for the 11th rotation there is above message for the 25th of June. So, UH-60Ms 10-20241 and 10-20281 went to Zeebrugge at that date.

You can find the daily military movements of Koksijde on our website: https://www.sgkoksijde.be/Movements.php?page=juni_2024.

66 helicopters came from Zeebrugge and passed through Koksijde on their way to Europe
81 helicopters came from Europe and passed through Koksijde on their way to Zeebrugge
That makes a total of 147 helicopters that passed throught Koksijde
