Joe  This looks like it might be a MH-60G Pave Hawk (Special Mission) bird.  You don't see these babies much unless you're at their base or on the wrong end of some serious butt kicking.  Nice capture

Joe, I missed your note.   Was this a Navy bird or Army/Air Force.  It's difficult to see the position and angle of the tail wheel in this photograph.

Pretty confident this bird (90-26225) is an HH-60G.  55th Rescue Squadron based at D-M.

You're probably correct.  I didn't see your note before I posted the MH-60G comment, but I thought that the HH designator was Navy and the MH designator was for Army and Air Force "Special Mission" birds.

Excellent shot, Joe!  I would love to catch a Papago Black Hawk on approach, it's always from the south around the Papago Buttes.
