Re: Karup Airshow 19-6-2022

Concerning MH-60R N-979: MH-60R N-978 performed displays several times during the day and once it landed after its solo display it was towed to one of the "garage box" type of hangers". This was around 2 pm (did not check the exact time on my watch, but give or take). This box was open the entire da...

Re: EHGR 02.03.2022

Does anyone know the ID of the Dutch CH-47F which flew roughly around 11:30 to 12:30 hrs with call sign "Grizly 12". It showed up on ADSB with hex code 00001, and the route which it flew could not be followed completely but it seemed to be a test flight from Woensdrecht rather then a local light fro...

Re: Tag der Bundeswehr Fassberg 15-6-2019

@Marco70, the three NH-90s and CH-53 flew multiple time from the flightline (near the tower, behind the trees) to the show area. Each time they were dropping off people or materials for the display, flew back to the flightline and returned again. One of the three NH-90s was the 79+10

Re: Tag der Bundeswehr Fassberg 15-6-2019

Hi Jochem, We had the same trouble. The windows were tainted, it was dark inside and the steel construction against the helicopter also did not help. But from the lowest vintage point possible to view the serial we came to the conclusion that it had to be a "5". Bit difficult to describe perhaps but...

Hi Ronny, Thanks for the updates on the original repor, a few remarks: The ground school at Fassberg is TAusbZLw (Technisches Ausbildungszendrum der Luftwaffe), no longer TSLw3 I believe that the NH-90s in Halle 8 are in use for ground instruction purposes (at least assigned to that role temporary)....

Re: Danish Air Show - Aalborg 10 Juni 2018

The paradrop was done using B-538. Photo proof during take off while the other three RDAF C-130’s were on the ground at Aalborg.

The solo display was indeed B-583 which came from the shelter area in the northeast corner of the base.

Re: Danish Air Show - Aalborg 10 Juni 2018

Sorry, forgot to add that we also read the T-431 close to the AS550s, EH101 and CL-604 in the shelter area on the west side (behind the old timer part of the static). Not sure if that is the one which departed at the end of the show since we left after the power demo, just when the C-130J took off a...
