Blackhawk “roadrunner” seen at A2 (Netherlands)

Post by Venz »

Today a Blackhawk was seen on the back of a trailer at the A2. Is has a dark grey c/s and seems to have registration OM-8H8.

Anyone more information regarding this roadrunner?

Today (07-08-2019), I saw the same Blackhawk on a trailer riding on the A58 in the direction of Eindhoven. Serial was not OM-8H8 but OM-BHB. Sounds like a new UH-60M for the Slowak AF??

Likely another (civil) UH-60A for the Slovak Training Academy (STA).

That's quite a strange routing. On the A2 and then on the A58 towards Eindhoven. Spent the night on a 'special' location??
