Active on 19.10. were LTG 62 A400M 54+19, 54+26 and 54+31.

Noted on the ramp on 15.10. were
54+10, 54+17, 54+20, 54+25, 54+30, 54+31 plus 5 unidentified.

The „Generalinspekteur Luftwaffe“ likes to give the wing a new badge in the next months, he stated that the blind „Hans Huckebein“ on LTG 62s badge don’t represent a modern and active transport unit with many different tasks. It is also possible to give it a traditional name.

Due to it´s still untenable condition and the obvious unability of Airbus at Sevilla to resolve the problems the delivery of 54+36 was postponed further. The same will happen with 54+35.

Active LTG 62 A400M in mid-November were 54+05, 54+18, 54+19, 54+20, 54+24, 54+25, 54+31, 54+33 (on 17.11. to Al Azraq in exchange for 54+23 which came back on 18.11.) and 54+34.

54+25 exchanged 54+16 as a tanker and got the refuelling pods.

Visiting on 18.11. was NH90NTH 79+57 of MFG 5 while C-160D 50+83 of LTG 63 performed several overshoots and two unidentfied TLwG 51 Tornados did two overshoots.

The 54+23 was spotted westbound yesterday (from Tel Nof), but was a bit too high!

The detachment at Al Azraq was ever carried out by a tanker, so 54+23 and 54+33 are pod equipped.
