The only reference I can find in 'BAR' is for an April 1992 visit to the Fort Rucker complex during which the following JCH-3Es (of 17 believed to be in service with the Army Aviation Test Center) were noted at Cairns AAF:

63-9690/'60', 64-14221, 64-14230, 65-12792, 65-12796, 65-12800, 66-13296, 69-5808 and 69-5812

The report also notes that the following four JCH-3Es were known to be on strength but were not noted during the visit:

65-5698, 65-5699, 65-5700 and 65-12795

No further mention of these helos in 'BAR' up to the end of 1994.

Hope it helps,
M

Tony, some years later (nov 1997) I've seen in total 4 JHH-3E's stored/wfu at Enterprise MAP.

They were: 65-12786 + 66-13291 + 66-13296 + 69-5801.

perhaps these could be your 4 missing ....
