The unit at Davis-Monthan AFB is the 55th RSQ, and a lot of the other ones are not up to date either.

Please fix the HH-60G page! The HH-60G is a Pave Hawk, not a Pave Tack. Pave Tack is a guidance pod.

Thanks to Tony for pointing this out in April 2001.

The HH-60G is called a Pave Hawk, not Pave Tack. It is based on the UH-60 Black Hawk. I am a Pave Hawk pilot.
thank you
