US Navy 168587?

Hi,

A US Navy Sikorsky MH-60 Knighthawk overflew Exeter today.

I believe this was 168587, but can find very little info on this airframe. Any assistance please?

Many thanks in advance.

Scramble database records this as being an MH-60S coded AM-04 of HSC-22 in March 2017...........but I suspect that may be where the serial came from?

The USS Ross and USNS William Mclean are currently operating in the Channel taking part in OST out of Plymouth I believe. Its most probably off one of these ships so hopefully, someone may confirm for you if it is observed on one of them while around/close to Plymouth. Possibly will be involved with JW later in the month.

Hi,
Photographed USS Ross leaving Plymouth last week hanger door closed unfortunately. So no sign of a MH-60.
