EHKD 25-05-2020

Post by Theo1 »

The following NH90's were noted outside their hanger at around 10.30 hrs.

N227
N228
N326

When I took the ferry from Texel to Den Helder at 10.00 hrs. I noted a Naval ship sailing to Den Helder with a chopper on his deck.
Due to my position and the dirty window of the ferry I could't make out what Helicoper it was. It had the seize of a NH90 / Puma.
Once in Den Helder I couldn't find it anymore.
Anybody an idea which chopper it could have been.
Thanks for your help.

Regards,

Theo

The Naval ship you mentioned at that time should be BNS Leopold1 with a NH90 entering Naval Base Den Helder.

Also on its way to the ASW Exercise in the waters between Denmark and Norway.

RN-02 is on board

RN-04 is probably on board (not 100% sure)
