The U.S. Air Force has received the first Operational Loss Replacement HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopter, which in turn is a rebuilt low-hour U.S. Army UH-60L Black Hawk.
The first 210th RQS Operational Loss Replacement HH-60G Pave Hawk was delivered to Alaska Air National Guard.
The HH-60 is the Department of Defence's sole combat-search-and-rescue helicopter. The OLR program will restore the Pave Hawk fleet to its authorized size.
It is announced that new platforms have much younger airframe. These airframes are from 2001 to 2004 models where USAF ones which are sitting on the ramp are 1992 models. These are Army Limas rebuilt to be Golf models.
