Interesting info on that C-27 being part of the DOS AirWing.  Wonder if they were going to modify them into spray aircraft like the OV-10s.

Ever-so-slightly different angle than the one James posted in the C-130 thread.  At first I thought this was one of the local CSAR birds, then I saw it was much lighter and thought it might be a white Coast Guard one.  So I'm thinking "AWESOME!," because when do we ever see USCG Herks in Arizona?  Then as it got closer and I saw it was totally bare-metal, I got even more excited, because when do we ever see bare-metal C-130s anywhere?  Blah blah blah, here's the darned photo:

Here's my contribution on the naked C-130.  As you can see, she was already starting to pass when I finally got my camera/lens working properly.  I guess that gives my shot a different perspective than the others.

It was cool to see this, you don't see bare-metal C-130s very often.

Post by: Joe Copalman on December 17, 2009, 09:16:22 AM
I noticed that too Ned.  Puzzling since "FT" is a Moody AFB tailcode (stands for "Flying Tigers").  I poked around online and it looks like those Herks belong to the 563rd Rescue Group, which is a Geographically-Separated Unit of Moody's 23rd Wing.  That would make this a 79th RQS bird.

You need to do some dust spot cleanup though and maybe back off on the sharpening just a little.
You've got some very crispy lines and some halos around the edges.

Title: Re: Davis-Monthan AFB (DMA, KDMA)/AMARG
Post by: Joe Copalman on February 23, 2010, 03:20:25 PM
Bill, I've been told by a British friend that it might just be a crew swap with the airframes already at D-M instead of a different batch of aircraft.  Flightaware shows them operating down there still using the "ICE" callsign, so it might be worth a trip out to see if they're the same jets.


Title: Re: Davis-Monthan AFB (DMA, KDMA)/AMARG
Post by: John B. on February 23, 2010, 03:46:35 PM
I am pretty sure the crew swap happened.  I saw a VC10 depart yesterday (heading northwest) in the crummy weather.  There was a TriStar as well, but I am not sure when it departed--I think during the night.

As Block 30's go, this is one of the "newer" ones. I'd be surprised if she was heading to the boneyard this soon. They just started retiring FY85 Block 30's.

On a side note, I am supremely jealous that you caught this bird!!! Great shot and that tail is darn near day-glo.

Today I had a NASA 377SGT-F Super Guppy at DM.

He actually took off and landed from the opposite direction than normal air traffic.

Though he snuck up on me, I didn't let him get away.  ;D

Sitting in front of Ops, not sure if it's a gas-n-go or what. Nose isn't open and I'd hate to think that was a last go round the pattern before going into AMARG.

They should clear this kind of stuff with us dang it all!!!

The nose is open and lots of people running around. I watched but saw nothing come out. There is a large load of cargo sitting on the ramp though. Hope she stays overnight.

A foreign country has bought T-38s and they will be taken for upgrades and standardization via Superguppy, which is very good for the program if we want to see her remain flying!

NASA941/SGUP has just filed a flight plan.  It is scheduled to depart from KELP (El Paso Intl) at 11:00AM CST heading for KDMA (Davis Monthan Afb) for an estimated arrival at 12:22PM CST.

Hey,

Finally got around to sorting some images out, starting with some older ones first from last March for the heritage conference, which being a newbie to the area etc I did not know this was happening, anyway it was a nice suprise, best of what I have got as I also did not know where to go so was stood on the mound by the Pima museum.

This one is still an unmodified RF-4C.  They only become QF-4s (or in this case, QRF-4s) after the drone pack has been installed by BAe Systems out at Mojave. 

Very cool shot Chris!  And sweet shot of the Guppy, Ned!

Great capture Ned! The detail is tremendous on this Hog and he even has a few goodies slung under the wings. With all the rain you've got in Tucson the past few days, I was wondering if you had to trade your Mark IV for a canoe? Remember, your Mark IV is weather-sealed and can probably take more "weather" than most folks would consider (http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/600984/1892#9904373)

According to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Convair_XC-99), the Convair XC-99 has been transferred to Davis-Monthan to be stored in a less damaging environment. 

Quote
In an effort to protect the aircraft, in the summer of 2011, a decision was made by the restoration staff to move the disassembled XC-99 to the Military Air Transport Service storage facility at Davis–Monthan Air Force Base, near Tucson, Arizona.[7] The XC-99 will remain at Davis–Monthan Air Force Base, in an area containing other aircraft belonging to the Museum, until the restoration staff has the time and resources to perform a full restoration.

Has anyone heard anything about it coming to D-M?

The light was really terrible today, but I snagged a few shots of the arriving Columbian Air Force Kfirs and a departing 727.  At least those watching for them will know what they look like!  I saw a 707 arrive, as well--but I didn't get good shots of it.  It is grey ;)

I really enjoyed my 1st trip to Tucson to shoot at DM. Thanks for being my wingman Joe. Without your help I surely would have become trapped in the vortex of asphalt known as the Tucson street system  ;D

It was also great fun to meet-up and shoot with Harvey, Chris, Bill, and Barry. Ned, I'm sorry we missed each other - I'll definitely be back. There are a few more items I want to try on the menu at Luke's Italian Beef.

As I've been playing with my images, I've noticed that some of the Kfir's and A-10's returned to DM with what appears to be unused ordinance. For example, the Kfir below looks like it has a couple of large noise-makers hanging under the delta wing. My A-10 image above looks like there are a couple of missiles on the hangers. Is that normal? I always assumed they used all their ordinance at the range and came home empty. Please educate this old fat man. Thanks in advance.

Solid shot, Jeff.

It's very normal for A-10s to return to DM with ordnance.  I noticed the Dummy Mk. 82s on the Kfirs, as well as the practice bomb units.  Looks like some are carrying some type of ECM pod as well.

The "missles" on the A-10 are captive, inert Mavericks, usually one IR and one Laser-guided so they can practice locking up targets on the ranges with them.  

Was great shooting with you yesterday, and thanks again for driving.

After all of the other Heavy arrivals/departures, I guess it should be of no surprise that an Antonov would show up!

Idaho A-10c with a new, at least to me, rocket pod. KDMA, 1-18-13.

Looks like a standard LAU-131, only with extended tubes.  The 2.75" rockets have a variety of warheads, some of them much longer than others.  My hunch is that this launcher was either built or adapted to accommodate rockets with the longer warheads.

I found this budget summary outlining the acquisition of a bunch of ordnance for the Air Force, including "LAU-131 Extended Length Launchers," for the Advanced Precision Kill Weapons System, which is the fancy name for laser-guided 2.75" rockets.  LAU-131 info on page 7: http://www.dtic.mil/descriptivesum/Y2012/AirForce/0604602F_5_PB_2012.pdf

I'm sure this was tested out at Eglin or Nellis by the active-duty test guys first.  Wouldn't be surprised if we start seeing it on the AATC birds though.

The State Department has an "Air Wing?"  Really?    :-X


Title: Re: Davis-Monthan AFB (DMA, KDMA)/AMARG
Post by: bilwor on March 20, 2013, 01:11:56 PM
Department of State Air Wing

In 1978, the Bureau for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) formed an office to use excess military and government aircraft for support of foreign nations' counter-narcotics operations. The first aircraft used was a crop duster used for eradication of illicit crops in Mexico in cooperation with the local authorities. The separate Air Wing was established in 1986 as use of aviation assets grew in the war on drugs.

The aircraft fleet grew from crop spraying aircraft to larger transports and helicopters used to support ground troops and transport personnel. As these operations became more involved in direct combat, a further need for search and rescue and armed escort helicopters was evident. Operations in the 1980s and 1990s were primarily carried out in Colombia, Guatemala, Peru, Bolivia and Belize. Many aircraft have since been passed on to the governments involved, as they became capable of taking over the operations themselves.

Following the events of the September 11 attacks, and the subsequent war on terror, the Air Wing went on to expand their operations from mainly anti-narcotics operations to also support security of United States nationals and interests, primarily in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Safe transport for various diplomatic missions were undertaken, requiring the acquisition of larger aircraft types, such as Sikorsky S-61, Beechcraft King Air and De Haviland DHC-8-300. Armed escorts were also increased using various helicopters fitted as gunships.

In 2011, the Air Wing was operating more than 230 aircraft around the world, the main missions still being counter narcotics and transportation of state officials.

For a time, DOS Air Wing was one of the world's largest operators of OV-10s, using de-militarized OV-10Ds and upgraded OV-10Gs for counternarcotics work in Colombia and Ecuador.  They're out of the OV-10 business now, but still have a pretty robust Air Wing.  The two C-9s in active storage at Willie were supposed to be going to the DOS Air Wing, and the civvie-reg CH-46s that have come through have also been DOS birds.

Awesome catch, Bill.  Wondering how much longer these will be around.  Maintenance nightmares, from what I've read.

Someone needs to take a bulldozer to those two C-9s' parked at Gateway and just scrap them - make these government dipsticks fly coach on United or someone else.

Sometimes I have to remind myself how blessed we aviation photographers are in Arizona. Like many of you, I have friends outside of AZ that can't believe the opportunities we get on a regular basis. Tucson is alive with Angel Thunder goodies; Willie is having a festival of Harriers, F-5's & T-45's; and that is just this weekend. Always something fun happening. Well done Bill.

A busy day for Sierra Pacific...

Nice catch John. These older 737-200's are some of my favorite commercial aircraft. IMO, those long/skinny Pratt & Whitney engines really add to the aesthetics. Still looking good after 30 years of service. I wish I could say the same for myself  ;)

Likely my research is in error, but it looks like FlightAware thinks this plane hasn't flown since 2006?


Title: Re: Davis-Monthan AFB (DMA, KDMA)/AMARG
Post by: John B. on October 20, 2014, 08:45:02 PM
Thanks Jeff!

It is just FlightAware being goofy.  I have pictures back to 2010 and quite a few Azappers have photographed this and N703S (the other Sierra Pac 737).  

However, according to the internets, Sierra Pacific has acquired a 737-500.  So, we might soon be seeing the last flights for these 200s.   :(

Nice catch... That was a quick upload of the Galaxy, I watched it fly over on my drive down Kolb and I-10 and was thinking what a good shot that would be with the dark skies in the back ground and the golden sun hitting the beast.

BULLDOG OFF TO THE FIGHT.

First of all, thanks to Rene for the Heads up on the Bulldogs departure this morning. Based upon previous deployments I expected them to go about 0730 with the sunrise at 0712. I went early to be sure I didn't miss anything. I stopped briefly at the gas station at the corner of Kolb and Valencia to wait for the first hint  of light and to minimize my exposure to base security personnel. I soon heard some unknown whistling sounds which I finally realized were A-10s departing in the total darkness. It was 38 minutes prior to sunrise when the last A-10 went past me. I had cranked my ISO up to 12,800 and was panning with the noise in near total darkness. If you stare at this image long enough you convince yourself that it is indeed an A-10. I then drove down to Wilmot and crossed my fingers hoping for second pulse. Walt Thomas showed up about that time and we were rewarded with a small group of aircraft deploying at sunrise. I'll post those images later.

+1 John. I remember as a kid going on maneuvers with Dad to Mountain Home AFB. Although they didn't have F-15's then. These poor guys are not picking the best of times to trade their base of operations from Idaho to Arizona; even if it is a short stay  ;)

Thanks, Joe and Jeff.  It was a good time of day to return to DM.

Jeff:  They are only here from North Carolina until the end of June.

I caught this today.  I am unsure if it is related to the wrap-up of Angel Thunder or perhaps foreshadowing future Snowbird activity--or neither.

I think this is the same bird Harvey caught at Luke recently, perhaps they're getting serious about the F-35?  Angel Thunder also has nations that send observers to check out the exercise to see if they want to participate, so they may have been doing some of that too.  Cool catch regardless.

Hi Jeff, it has been 30 years since I was in the boneyard. We rode down in an AF bus that the A/C wasn't working. Coming home at 1 pm with no A/C at all and the bus had to stop 4 times along the highway to reset an alarm that was triggered by something in the engine bay. It took 3 an a half hours to get home along with being stuck in stop and go traffic through central Phoenix. The kids put the windows down and it felt like they were checking to see if the cookies in the oven were done. Never again on an AF bus, the same thing happened to me about three years ago going to Gila Bend ranges with another squadron, I should have learned back then.  :-\

The backseater in the A-29 in this shot was an Air Force A-10 instructor pilot who had earned a DFC in Afghanistan for saving a MARSOC team from being overrun, then went on to be part of a Mobile Training Team to help the Colombian Air Force refine their attack aviation doctrine and prepare them for participation in Red Flag, Maple Flag, and Angel Thunder.  He started 2014 in the back seats of Colombian OV-10s and A-29s, and ended it as an F-35 pilot and weapons officer for the 61st FS out at Luke.  Whatever complaints people may have about the F-35, the involvement of dudes like this in the program is a good sign that the Air Force is at least trying to bring some solid CAS/FAC/CSAR corporate knowledge into the JSF community.

^^^^ I concur with Bill, very nice catch on the Sherpa Ned. This is one of two Sherpas that Scott Youmans and I have photographed the past two weekends at Coolidge - http://azaerophoto.com/forum/index.php?topic=18.msg61926#msg61926. The FAA registry shows it is owned by the "Law Enforcement Support Office" in Battle Creek, Michigan. It has a decal on the side (below the cockpit window) saying is an asset used by the Richland County Sheriff's Department in South Carolina and last Saturday German special forces were jumping out of it at Coolidge. Go figure ???

Thanks for the additional information Bill. I'm still scratching my head why airplanes registered to a law enforcement group in Michigan, once operated by a South Carolina County Sheriff, and now operated by another group in IL is doing in Coolidge with German military jumping out of it? Oh well, I'm just glad these odd birds are around for us to photograph.

Spent some time in Tucson this week with Ned and Paul Dunn.  When the Strike Eagles returned from the first sortie of the day, one aircraft declared an IFE and held over the mountains with his wingman until all other aircraft recovered.  He successfully engaged the arresting cable (accompanied by a shower of sparks, see attached image below), and the runway was back in use by the time we got back from a quick lunch over at Luke's.

I saw he dropped into Nellis AFB and I was wondering where he was going next.  I am surprised he is already moving again, but it is the weekend so they probably want to get home (or at least to Gander or somewhere east).

An immersive 360° aerial over the 'boneyard' captured October, 2015.

Of interest is the placement of the tail sections of the B-52s.  As part of the 1991 START (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty) between Russia and the US the tail sections of the decommissioned B-52s are to be placed at a 30 degree angle to and aft the remaining portion of the aircraft and left for at least 60 days.  This serves to allow the Russians to verify by satellite that the aircraft had been destroyed.
