3rd Aviation Brigade UH-60Ms – Update

Archives

Savannah – On 10 June 2014, I posted that UH-60Ms were flying out of Hunter AAF and that I believed that they were new helicopters for the 3rd Aviation Brigade based at Hunter.  Radio monitoring over the last several days seems to back that up.  This post includes corrections on some tail numbers as well as more new UH-60Ms heard since Tuesday.

So far, I’ve heard twelve of the thirteen new UH-60Ms flying at Hunter.  Of those twelve, two have been heard on the 4-3 AVN Brawler Ops frequency so I felt comfortable as identifying them as 4-3 AVN aircraft (20573 and 20610).  At this point, I’m also comfortable identifying the rest as 3rd Aviation Brigade aircraft since the crews are familiar with the airspace and local landmarks and have been flying what seemed like normal flights for 3rd Aviation Brigade aircraft.

  • ARMY/BLACKHAWK 20610 (4-3 AVN)
  • ARMY/BLACKHAWK 20573 (4-3 AVN)
  • ARMY/BLACKHAWK 20539 (3 AVN)
  • ARMY/BLACKAHWK 20572 (3 AVN)
  • ARMY/BLACKHAWK 20576 (3 AVN)
  • ARMY/BLACKAHWK 20577 (3 AVN)
  • ARMY/BLACKAHWK 20579 (3 AVN)
  • ARMY/BLACKAHWK 20581 (3 AVN)
  • ARMY/BLACKAHWK 20584 (3 AVN)
  • ARMY/BLACKAHWK 20585 (3 AVN)
  • ARMY/BLACKHAWK 20609 (3 AVN)
  • ARMY/BLACKHAWK 20612 (3 AVN)

As I also mentioned in the previous post, some of the UH-60Ms have shown up on the  Mode-S receiver.  Of the thirteen, eleven have so far shown up, helping provide tail number information for them.  Note that while 20613 below has been seen on Mode-S, I haven’t heard it on the radios yet.
