Kieler Woche Ship Helicopters

Post by Wrecks »

Noted after the Skrydstrup show at Kiel harbour during the Kieler Woche:

HMS Ocean:
Merlins ZJ125/J, ZH826/86
Apaches ZJ185, ZJ204, ZJ218, plus ZJ186 below deck

USS Mount Whitney:
SH-60S 168573/BR-34 (on deck)

The German ships said to have no helicopters on board, the Chinese ship could not be visited and on the Spanish the hangar remained closed.
During the Kieler Woche the military harbour was open last weekend and it will also be open on 22jun16.

For the benefit of Mr. Kite, there will be a show tonight on trampoline

On the 18th, Belgian BNS Godetia was present with an Alouette III on board (anyone for the number?), and Dutch Zr.Ms. Johan de Witt had its hangar door open revealing an unknown NH90 (anyone for the number?). On the 19th, BNS Godetia had gone.

On the 19th, British HMS Iron Duke had its hangar door partly open showing a Lynx (reportedly Lynx HMA8 ZF562/IR-404 but not read by us).

Could you please confirm code IR-406 for Lynx ZF562 on the Iron Duke? On June 14, 2016 it still carried IR-404 while visiting Arlanda airport, Stockholm, Sweden.
