USN VX-30 "Bloodhounds" Alltime Aircraft Roster
This list includes older versions of the unit, such as: NMC, PMTC, NAWC, & NWTSPM. This roster is quite large due to the fact that this unit was in charge of drones over the years. There's probably many drone aircraft still missing from this list. VX-30 QF-4 & F-14 aircraft were retired 2004. The 'Earliest' column refers to the earliest evidence found for the aircraft, ie: photo, registry, and so on. The 'Latest' column refers to the latest evidence found. The dates do NOT refer to the exact amount of time the aircraft were active. Note: Aircraft rosters are by no means 100% accurate or complete.
