74+68 Tiger UHT Heer, towed outside of G8
84+25 CH-53G Lw/HSG64 on maintenance inside E7
84+45 CH-53GS Lw/HSG64 outside for engine test
84+46 CH-53GS Lw/HSG64 outside of E7 for some tests
85+12 CH-53GS Lw/HSG64 outside for engine test, later into E7
(D-HADA/I-DTR)E BK.117D3 all yellow, just the "E" was readable on the tail of this helicopter but the colours and reg fits exactly for c/n 21161 so I am sure it is that helicopter
[D-HADE] BK.117D3 Elifriulia, also future reg "I-CREW" already painted. c/n 21162. Towed from F8a into C9/2
[D-HADM] BK.117D3 The Helicopter Company. Towed from scale into paintshop, then disappeared somewhere in the backside hangars. I think this is THC#6 which would make it c/n 21191. Needs final confirmation
[D-HADQ] BK.117D3 inside C9/1 in a striking paintbrush-style orange/red black colours. The future reg was applied, albeit taped over and unreadable.
[D-HBKC] BK.117D3 Vigili del Fuoco (red/yellow colours), towed outside of D10 (c/n 21179), also on boxes next to the helicopter
[D-HBKD] BK.117D3m Serbian AF, towed outside of C7 for fuelling (=14506, c/n 21143)
[D-HBKE] BK.117D3m all dark grey colours. Towed from production area to the scale and back. Has the same colours like the Hungarian AF helicopters and looked very much like a military aircraft. Although unconfirmed, it might be the first one for Cyprus National Guard. To be continued...
[D-HBKG] BK.117D3 Vigili del Fuoco (red/yellow colours), production flight as "Redfox 14". C/n is 21181, also on boxes next to the helicopter
[D-HBKL] BK.117D3 white colours, red stripe. Moved around inside F8a
[D-HCBA] EC.135.3H ÖAMTC (all yellow with Austrian flag on tail), outside of D10 for engine test (c/n 2206, also readable on open boom)
[D-HCBF] / M-BEEF EC.135.3H blue/white c/s (c/n 2180). Inside hangar C9/1
[D-HCBU] EC.135.3H primer the tail was just visible in the back of D10
c/n 2204 EC.135.3H the dismantled tailboom of this one with the c/n painted one was noted on a pallet inside hangar F8a. Obviosly ready for shipment to Airbus USA
unidentified helicopters were a Oman Police inside D10 and a Marine NH.90NFH inside F8

I will not post my pictures from here publicly from now on. But if you wish to see them, please send me a PN and I will send you a link to my album.

79+43 NH.90TTH Heer. This one was my surprise of the day. I thought the last one for German army was 79+42/TGEE42 but apparantly not! It was still incomplete and under cunstruction and was shortly towed outside of F8
79+51 NH.90NFH Marine. Outside and later into F8.
84+46 CH-53GS Lw/HSG64, outside for engine test

[D-HADL] BK.117D3 The Helicopter Company f/c. Towed from the production area into paintshop and back. I am not so sure anymore that D-HADM from last week is in fact c/n 21191. It could potentially also be this one.
[D-HADV] BK.117D3 all dark yellow/black window frame. Towed into F8a (c/n 21172)
[D-HBKA] BK.117D3 all dark yellow/black window frame (same colours as HADV). Outside of C9/1 for acceptance flight as "Redfox 10". C/n is 21174

[D-HCBE] EC.135.3H all bright yellow, black cockpit and fenestron frame. Towed outside of F8a (c/n 2197)
[D-HCBF] / M-BEEF EC.1335P3H, still inside C9/1 (c/n 2180)

delivery of the three Oman Police has now begun.
'A4O-HC' was noted last friday on ADSB doing a short local flight. It already has lost its test registration.
Now one helicopter is currently proceeding in greek airspace as "Oman11", obviously on delivery flight. It might be A4O-HC. Stops were made in Dubrovnik and Corfu so far.

??? EC.135.3H blue White colours. Towed just as I arrived. I just managed a short glimpse of it before it disappeared in the back...

heavy fog which did not clear up resulted in limited numbers of helicopters noted today.

Maybe worth to mention is that D-HBTA (which should be A4O-HA/21107) was noted on ADSB operating out of Augsburg later in the afternoon.
It would indicate that maybe just A4O-HC was flown to Oman so far.

Today I saw an EC.135 on ADSB (D-HCBA) flying from Donauwoerth to the ÖAMTC heliport near Innsbruck airport with callsign "Redfox 25".
Later in the afternoon it returned to Donauwörth again as "Redfox 25". Nice detail was that on the return flight it transmitted an austrian hex code but unfortunately the austrian reg was not shown on ADSB.

Tomorrow I plan to go to the factory, maybe I see it then.

I think it is c/n 2206, this one is intended for Austria.

[D-HADR] BK.117D3 DRF (c/n ??), towed into paintshop and then back into production area. Future registration "D-HXFJ applied and visible under sticker
D-HCBO EC.135.3H primer (c/n 2212), towed outside of D10
M-BEEF EC.135.3H wh/bl colours. Delivery flight to France as "MBEEF"
Unidentified helicopters was a H145 of "The Helicopter Company" inside D10, an unknown white/blue EC.135 inside D10 and a DRF EC.135 inside F8.
I missed the Austrian EC.135 from yesterday by half an hour. It was flown to Ingolstadt as "Redfox 21" and did not return.

The big hangar D10/1-4 was completely empty and received a new floor. That might explain the limited numer of helicopters that could be seen in the last weeks.

The three helicopters belong to the Royal Flight of Oman, not the Royal Oman Police.
They carry the national coat of arms, not that of the police, and they fly under ORF/Oman 09/10/11 callsigns.
I think they are sort of a replacement for the three EC225LPs that were sold.

A4O-HA -> Oman 09
A4O-HB -> Oman 10
A4O-HC -> Oman 11

A4O-HA was delivered on 26.02 via Brindisi-Kefalonia-Heraklion.

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.
