Jeez, I'm terrible at identifying these things. The number on the tail is 28076.

Anyone know what this is or what to put in the photo upload boxes?


Thanks,
Will

It's a Sikorsky H-60 Black Hawk. The tail number beats me, though. Unfortunately, your country's army and air force have a clueless habit of displaying incomplete numbers on their military aircraft  Smile

Hey Will,

Looks like a UH-60M that went through the Army's conversion program and was upgraded from an A-model.

Where did you take the pic?

Reg: 88-26076
cn: 70-1298
Generic Type: Sikorsky S-70 (H-60 Black Hawk/Seahawk)
Type: Sikorsky UH-60A Black Hawk (S-70A)

I figured this out by doing a search on Serial Number: "076" and Description: "UH-60" at http://users.rcn.com/jeremy.k/serialSearch.html The only possible serial number is 88-26076. Then, I went to http://www.scramble.nl/milbase.htm and got the cn.
