That indeed suggests it is operated by WTD 61 :-)

The NH90 Sea Lions are Naval Transport Helicopters (NTH), the Sea Tigers will be the NATO Frigate Helicopters (NFH).

74+23 Tiger UHT Heer, maintenance flight as "Redfox 5"
74+68 Tiger UHT Heer, outside of G8 for tests
79+13 NH.90TTH Heer, outside of F8

85+10 CH-53GS Lw/HSG64,in&out of E7
[98+49] (=74+49) Tiger UHT Heer, returned from local flight as "Redfox 1"
[D-HADI] BK.117D3 all dark blue. Out of C7 for production flight as "Redfox 11". Was seen on numerous flights in the last days. The helicopter has now exactly the same special instruments fitted than the Omani Police have. But I still do not know who will get this helicopter!
[D-HADK] BK.117D3 all white. Production flight, C/n 21137
[D-HADV] BK.117D3 all yellow, black cocpit frame. Production flight as "Redfox 25" and later into D10/2, c/n unknown so far

[D-HCBJ] EC.135.3H Policia Nacional "Angel 03", production flight as "Redfox 14", c/n probably 2208 but needs final confirmation
[D-HCBL] / HU.26-30/09-316 EC.135.3H Guardia Civil. Production flight as "Redfox 7". Funny detail is that on the port side "16" of the future code is not overtaped and on the starbord side "09" is visible.
[D-HCBM] EC.135.3H primer, noted in the back of D10
D-HRTJ EC.135.3H DRF Luftrettung. The next new 135 for DRF is ready and was towed into the paintshop. Still no testreg. applied, only the future registration was painted.

14531 BK.117D3m Serbian AF. Was towed in and out of the paint shop. In red/blue/white VIP-c/s but without any national insignia apart from the serial on the tail. Still without german test-reg. I guess its c/n is 21177, that one was reported in september as a VIP aircraft for Serbia.
84+15 CH-53GS Lw/HSG64 out of E7
84+74 CH-53GS Lw/HSG64 outside on the ramp for engine test
A4O-HC BK.117D3 Omani Police. Totally unexpected a third one showed up months after the first two appeared. To my great pleasure it was unmasked and with full markings and now I can conclude that the other two will obviously become A4O-HA and -HB.
[98+53] (79+66) NH.90NFH Marine, outside of F8 for engine test
[D-HADA] BK.117D3 all bright yellow, towed into F8a, also wears future reg "I-DTRA", albeit crossed out.
[D-HADK] BK.117D3 all white, returned from Paderborn Lippstadt as "Redfox 25" (c/n 21137)
[D-HBKD] BK.117D3m Serbian AF (=14506), towed from C7 to somewhere else (c/n 21143)
[D-HBKH] BK.117D3 all bright yellow (inside D10/4)
[D-HBKJ] BK.117D3 all white, towed across the ramp, still under construction
[D-HBTA] BK.117D3 Omani Police, towed outside of D10 for engine test or checkflight. Now I am sure this one will be A4O-HA.. (c/n 21125)
[D-HCBE] EC.135.3H all bright yellow (F-HLCL/c/n 2197)
[D-HCBM] EC.135.3H primer, the unidentified one from last week was now outside, c/n is 2204
D-HCIA City Airbus Airbus (inside C9/4)
D-HMBE BK.117D3m Airbus, shortly outside of C7 (c/n 20177)

DGAC website has 21125 as F-HLAY... any other offers for A40-HA (or A40-HB also unknown, unless as usual, I,ve missed something!)

sorry, my mistake...
21125 is of course F-HLAY and D-HBTA/A4O-HA is unknown so far.
The error occured from some boxes with the number on it around the place where the helicopter was parked. But obviously it was the wrong helicopter.
The other one (D-HADB/A4O-HB) is confirmed as 21123.

@spottervito

You missed D-HXFH c/n 21170, was delivered in primer color last friday to DRF Luftrettung. Rumors say it will get a special livery „50 years“ of DRF Luftrettung.

thanks for this info! It was tested as "D-HADN" in primer (where I saw it :wink: ), but it is in fact the first DRF helicopter which was delivered in primer. This could be a strong indicator that it will get special colours...
Please keep us informed if you see something.

Merry Christmas an a happy 2023 for everybody!
