Basically, unless you saw the window config you may never know.

...and the summary of that is that 00-9001 is thought to be a fixed airframe c/n 25494. Also, 02-4452 is thought to be fixed airframe c/n 25493. These two operate out of McGuire ADB and seem to be totally separate from the other three serials. In addition, the USAF own up to having just two C-32Bs - one purchased in FY2000 and the other in FY2002 - and it would be fairly logical that it is these two.

98-6006, 99-6143 and 02-5001 are thought to be swapped around between the two COMCO jets N226G and N610G.
It is conjectured that, for some time, 98-6006 is used with airframe N610G (c/n 29304), 99-6143 is used with airframe N226G (c/n 25491) and 02-5001 switches between the two.

C/n 22212 cannot be involved as it has got P&W engines. All the above have got RR engines.
Cheers, Bob

Thanks EGVP for the Scramble forum it makes interesting reading. Thanks for the summary Bob I did not even think of the engines to eliminate c/n22212.
