Can anyone up date us on the H model shuffle?

So far I heard that MT ANG has 2 H's from LRF 73-1597 and 74-1671

Mansfield OH ANG has 5 H's from various units 81-0626, 0629 and 630, 82-0054 and 0056 and 83-0488

CT ANG has 3 H's from LRF 74-1664, 1667 and 2134

Dobbins has 3 H's from LRF 92-0551, 0552 and 93-1039

I'm sure there are more.

Thanks

Bob

I'd be interested in knowing as well...I did see that 74-1677 went to the the Afghanistan AF and 74-1665 is getting the Frankenherc treatment after a hard landing and it's going to the Afghanistan AF as well.

I am trying to keep up with the current locational of all the old Dyess birds.

74-1663 and 74-1666 are at Yokota AB now.

Little Rock has almost divested itself of all of its H1s and H3s. There are about 4-5 of each remaining. The tail transfer seemed to happen quite quickly.

I haven't kept up. So what does the Rock mostly fly now? I know they have plenty of "Js" 50th not flying H3s anymore? 53rd/62nd? Jeesh I am waaaaay behind.

41st and 61st are now all J and the 61st is still receiving airplanes. We have half as many as the 41st. The 53rd will deactivate sometime this summer. The 50th remains the primary H squadron, but they have about half a dozen Hs. Surprisingly, they have more H1s than H3s. 62nd is still around, but is interflying with the 154th in the legacy FTU. AFRC is now a numbered unit, they are the 913AG and interfly with the 50th. They have H2s, but the 50th guys and gals haven't been flying them. I think all but one of they're H2s have yet to receive the new tail flash.The day of the H has pretty much come to a close. Whether or not the Keesler J's come to Little Rock is still up in the air.

BTW here is the latest I have on the Shuffle:

CT ANG 74-1664,1667,1680,1687,2063,2069,2133,2134

MT ANG 73-1598, 74-1670,1671, 1679,1688,1690,1691; 73-1597 is reported for MT ANG is at PDM?

OH ANG 81-0626,0629,0630,82-0054, 0055, 0056, 83-0048, plus 1 from LRF.

Dobbins AFRC 92-0550, 551, 552, 93-1036,1037, 1038, 1039, 1040 All from the 50th.

Other ex 50th birds 92-0547 to WVANG, 92-0548 to Peoria, 92-0549 to Chey, 0553 to CLT, 0554 still 50th, 93-1041 at Robins

ex Dobbins birds 84-0204, 0205 To AFRC LRF, 81-0626,0629,0630 to OH ANG, 81-0627,0628, 0631 to LRF ANG

As usual I am confused as to the why's but that is supposedly where they are.

Bob

Any corrections welcomed

It looks to me like Dobbins is converting to H3s with the rest of the 50th airplanes being sent to replace AMPed airplanes and MAFFS 7. The balance of the 81s were sent to the 327th to fill in their numbers. Perhaps the rest of the "new" units will receive their full compliment when Yokota converts to Js. It also looks like they're trying (for the most part) to keep like serial numbers together for commonality sake.

Just my guess.

We may be getting old. All the Herks I ever flew are either beer cans or waiting to be beer cans in the Bone Yard.

There maybe only 4 or 5 74 H models left at LRF and 14 at Yokota. The rest are in the Guard or at Shepherd.

33 of the 53 74 H models are still on the Inventory.
