Always interested to read the tidbits about these helicopters out there. I find it interesting that the USAF didn't want to wait for the new HH-60W to enter service before replacing the 60G's at the base. This article states that they may add-on features to these 60U's to make them more like the actual 60W, including the air-refueling probe and sensors. We shall see...

I'm still on the lookout for any info on who would be flying and operating these helos. I know the short answer is "Ghost Squadron", but little beyond that. The 60G and 60W are combat search and rescue aircraft, flown almost exclusively by pararescue forces. I've never heard of anyone outside the Pararescue / Special Operations world flying these aircraft, so it makes me wonder if pararescue assets are assigned to the base.
