Need some help from our Aviator folks.

What are these MOJO flights? They have been passing over my place lately. When the MOJO80 passed is was at night and I couldn't tell what it was but it was loud. Then today MOJO14 passed over and it was really loud my neighbor said it was a helicopter but I was inside and didn't see it. She said it's been about ever day.

I'm just outside of Baton Rouge. This was off FlightAware.

Are they military?

Thanks

Apparently they fly back and forth between Chennault International and Hammond Northshore Regional but that’s all I came up with in a quick look see.

WAPO had an article that the Lousiana National Guard rotary wings were operating with the call sign MOJO (MOJO69 went down killing the crew and Marine Special Operator passengers).

So my guess is that it is military, but not sure if it's there National Guard unit, or tied to Special Ops training, my guess would be the former as there are a lot of MOJO flights from KHDC (Hammond Northshore Regional Airport) which hosts the Army National Guard Base.

Slight thread drift: Chennault was a SAC B-47 & B-52 base, closed in 1963.

Chennault has been in constant use by various defense contractors and aircraft maintenance groups for decades . Boeing leased it for a while to refurb KC-135 tankers . The B-52's from Barksdale use it to practice touch and go landings since the runways are so damn long . I worked at a site just south of the runway and saw all kinds of neat aircraft coming and going .

Ah...found another source that identifies this as a UH-60 "Mike" Model in civilian nomenclature, a Sikorsky Blackhawk Medivac helicopter.

MOJO JOJO is the crazy super intellectual villain monkey in PowerPuff Girls. If he is unleashing yet another plot to take over the world we are in trouble.
