Sikorsky S-70 (16-7865)

Submitted

Two of the NAWDC Rotary Wing Weapons School's MH-60S Seahawks (aka: Knighthawks), 167865 (#74) and 167822 (#73), lift away from NAS Fallon's taxiway Echo with the snowy Stillwater Range mountains in the distance.
"73" still displays the "NSAWC" (Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center) acronym title; however, "NSAWC" was redesignated as "NAWDC" (Naval Aviation Warfighting Development Center) last year (2015). I also observed that some of NAWDC's assigned fixed wing aircraft on the ramp still show NSAWC titling while others now display the NAWDC acronym.
This photo is my 600th FA gallery post.

Hi, Mark, and TYVM. In a pic from this same series that was snapped just a few seconds earlier than this shot, I caught both of these Knighthawks lifting off while an F/A-18 passes by behind them on the climb from runway 31L. I'll forward that one to you via e/m.

Nice catch, Gary!

Greg and Cliff ... TYVM, guys. I almost posted this one last week but then I waited with this and posted two others so that this shot would be my 600th post. Thanx for the complis.
Also, a short while ago I emailed another click of these Seahawks to each of you. It shows them both lifted off with a NAWDC F/A-18 passing thru the scene behind them. Keep an eye open on your e/m box for that pic, k?
