74+68 Tiger UHT Heer, maintenance flight as "Redfox 1"
79+43 NH.90TTH Heer, towed outside of F8
79+62 NH.90NFH Marine, outside in front of F8, missing rotors and many panels.
98+53 / (79+66) NH.90NFH Marine (inside F8). This one was a bit hard to read, but the registration was a "98+" on a sticker and I am very sure that it is 98+53
84+28 CH-53GS Lw/HSG64, inside E7
84+46 CH-53G ex Lw. Was towed from somewhere into E7. Looked rather wfu, stripped of many parts and looked like being used as a source for spare parts.
85+08 CH-53GS Lw/HSG64, inside E7
85+10 CH-53GS Lw/HSG64, outside on the ramp
85+12 CH-53GS Lw/HSG64, outside on the ramp and later into E7
A4O-HB BK.117D3 Oman Royal Flight. Parked inside C9, ready for delivery. Already lost its test reg. "D-HADB". (c/n 21123). Was operating out of Augsburg for crewtraining until last week. The third one (A4O-HA/21107 ex D-HBTA) was not noted for one month now and might also be already delivered by now.
[D-HADE] / I-CREW BK.117D3 Elifriulia (inside F8a), (c/n 21162)
[D-HADL] BK.117D3 The Helicopter Company. Towed from D10 into F8a. c/n still unknown
[D-HADY] BK.117D3 primer (c/n 21194), production flight as "Redfox 15"
[D-HAD.] BK.117D3 Deutsche Rettungsflugwacht. Noted in the back of D10 (most probably this must be D-HADR/D-HXFJ)
[D-HAD.] BK.117D3 a third all dark yellow BK.117 was parked inside F8a, unfortunately the last letter was not visible
[D-HBKC] BK.117D3 Vigili del Fuoco di Trento. parkked inside D10/1 (c/n 21179)
[D-HBKI] BK.117D3 primer (c/n 21195), towed outside of D10 for engine test
([D-HBKK]) / I-ILEX BK.117D3 Air Green (yellow / Red c/s), inside F8a. "D-HBKK" was actually not read off today, only crossed out "I-ILEX" was visible
[D-HCBB] EC.135.3H white/blue colours (same as M-BEEF/2180), c/n unknown. Towed outside of D10 for testflight
[D-HCBO] EC.135.3H primer (c/n 2212), engine test
D-HCBS BK.117D3m Airbus, local flight as "Redfox 6"
D-HMBE BK.117D3m Airbus, towed outside of C7 (c/n 20177)
D-HRTJ EC.135T3H Deutsche Rettungsflugwacht; delivery flight to Baden Airpark as "DHRTJ". Unfortunately I completely missed this one while being testflown. I only saw it last year coming out of the paintshop as D-HRTJ, then never again until today when it was delivered. The test reg and c/n are therefore unknown so far.
JU-6777 BK.117D3 paintbrush colours (ex D-HADQ). This one made my day! Departed on delivery with mongolian crew as "JU6777", first stop was at Wiener Neustadt. Since this one received a mongolian reg also the identity is confirmed as ex D-HADQ/c/n 21169 (21169 was reported for Mongolian Airways). This was the same HADQ noted last year in light blue colours, the paintbrush style paint was applied later.
--- EC.135.3H primer (c/n 2236), the centre fuselage section was noted being towed.
For the sake of completeness, the following helicopters have been noted at nearby Augsburg Airport with Airbus this week:
89+52 SeaKing MK.41 Marine / MFG5
89+66 Sea King MK.41 Marine /MFG5
83+20 Sea Lynx Mk.88A Marine MFG5
All three were here for maintenance. Strangely, 89+52 has been reported on the dump at Nordholz in several reports (Scramble database, flugzeugforum.de, etc). This cannot be correct, since I noted 89+52 here, looking rather complete and intact. It cannot be the same helicopter.
Obviously the mistake has been copied from one report/database to another.
