Sure, from the recording logs (date & time UTC):

142145
142258
142358
150110
150550

Must have a look at Flightradar24 tomorrow morning and see what briefly out of CH comes up.

These will probably be the last flights out for the season, the cargo ship was in two weeks ago and the fuel tanker pulled out late last week. That usually means it is time to button up for the winter.

Hopefully not.

In the past I've heard them throughout March, and I've read USAF pubs. that say there is a winter fly-in season for Operation Deep Freeze. Solarix reported hearing an ICE 81 flight in mid June last year.

I haven't heard any flights today. They seem to be every couple of days this time of year.

I suspect they'd depart CH around 6-7am local NZ and arrive back around 9pm as I've heard them asking for the 0800UTC CH weather.

Yes, FR24 does suppress some stuff and not all military aircraft types are equipped with ADS-B, so they may or may not show up in/out of CH.
