3rd Combat Aviation Brigade Aircraft Update; 6 September 2018

Savannah – Last week I posted about Hunter AAF’s 3rd Combat Aviation Brigade flying again after their return from a deployment; this week I’ve got an update to the list of aircraft I began in that post. Since then, I’ve heard a few more new aircraft, so the list has grown. Thanks to information from readers about the fiscal years, this update also changes the question marks in some of the tail numbers to fiscal years and more monitoring opportunities have firmed up some unit associations.

As I hear more 3rd Combat Aviation Brigade aircraft and am able to identify them, I’ll add them to the list and post more updates. As always, updates and corrections are requested.


  1. 94-26587 and 95-26596 were previously heard as A/2-3 AVN aircraft until 2009 but unheard between 2009 and 2018. I’m guessing both are still A/2-3 AVN aircraft because C/2-3 AVN converted to the HH-60M and 4-3 AVN converted to the UH-60M.
  2. The unit associations for these aircraft are based on traffic heard on other frequencies including Base Ops and Battalion Ops frequencies.
