That's a RAG jet....and we all know that RAG jets are numbered "funny". I don't believe it's a reflection of the fleet squadrons.

I thought it said 139 at first glance, and I don't recall a RAG jet with a MODEX that low either....though my experience with RAG birds ain't exactly recent.

Enjoyed the thread, great video from Shadowhawk deployment.

Kinda funny reading the play by play of what was happing during transition, I was at 129 during the whole thing, either on the “B” side, or “G” side. ?
