Just this moment I just watched a mostly white with green top CH-46 flying north to south down Daytona Beach at about 200'... any ideas whose it is? I've never seen one dressed up like that, definitely wasn't standard camo. Very cool though.

Could be attached to HMX-1, the US Marine squadron that operates Marine-1. They fly several different types of helios, including the CH-46E Sea Knight.

It could also be one of the BV-107s or B-234s owned and operated by Columbia Helicopter, many of their airframes are former RCAF CH-113As, the Canadian version of the CH-46D. Some of their helios are white with a red stripe, and others are white with green stripes.

KC135 yes the first thing that came to mind when I saw it was Marine One. Not that the scheme is any Marine One that I have seen, but the dark green/white with straight edges not camo'ed is something I've only ever seen on Marine 1. However.. it wasn't the normal scheme, Obama isn't in Florida, and there was just the one solo, so I highly doubt it.

As far as Colombia yes I've seen them, Carson, Erikson, HeavyLift, etc during the fires here in '98 but as you say Columbia usually has white with red stripe, I've never seen them green, and there is no fire emergency that I know of on the east coast of Florida.

Not arguing with you, good points all, but I'm inclined to think it maybe something different. Or I may just be wrong

It is. A lot of times it looks black, but it is actually a dark olive green. Much darker than normal olive drab.



Why do Aerospace Engineering students have to turn things in on time?

Aren't there some Marine and Navy helio squadrons at NRB or NIP?
