Illustrated on this Major League Aviation™ t-shirt is the Sikorsky MH-60G|HH-60G Pave Hawk. Chosen by the U.S. Air Force in 1981, the UH-60A Black Hawk replaced the HH-3E Jolly Green Giant helicopters. The UH-60A Black Hawk was upgraded to the MH-60G|HH-60G Pave Hawk. The Sikorsky MH-60G|HH-60G Pave Hawk incorporates the US Air Force PAVE electronic systems program. The MH-60G Pave Hawk's primary mission is insertion and recovery of special operations personnel, while the HH-60G Pave Hawk's core mission is recovery of personnel under stressful conditions, including search and rescue. Both versions conduct day or night operations into hostile environments. Because of its versatility, the HH-60G may also perform peace-time operations. Such tasks include civil search and rescue, emergency aeromedical evacuation (MEDEVAC), disaster relief, international aid, counter-drug activities and NASA space shuttle support.
