(77+0.) BK.117D2 Heer/SAR. This must be either 77+06 or 77+07. It lost its test reg (HADF or HADL) and the germa serial was still overtaped. But obviously very soon to be delivered.
79+15 NH.90TTH Heer/THR30. Towed from E7 into F8. Undergoing deep maintenance and partly stripped of several parts.
79+29 NH.90TTH Heer/IHAZ. In&out of F8
84+52 CH-53GS Lw/HSG64 towed from one position in E7 to another
84+66 CH-53GS Lw/HSG64 inside hangar E7
84+67 CH-53GS Lw/HSG64 towed outside of E7 for short engine test
85+01 CH-53GA Lw/HSG64 (inside hangar F8)
[D-HADJ] BK.117D3 primer (c/n 21004). Production flight as "Redfox 10"
[D-HADK] BK.117D3 red/bk c/s. Towed from D10/4 into C9/1. the future reg was overtaped and difficult to read but it should be C-GWRI or GWRL. The colours would also match for a canadian rescue helicopter.
[D-HADN] BK.117D2m FA Ecuatoriana. Production flight as "Redfox 12". The sticker is now on a new position, so that 1/3 of the serial is visible. So FAE-1253 is confirmed for this one. (c/n 20355)
[D-HADR] BK.117D3 primer (c/n 21012)
D-HADW BK.117D2 Airbus. The second prototype was outside for some tests. (c/n 20002)
[D-HBKA] BK.117D3 Deutsche Rettungsflugwacht (DRF). Noted in the back of the hangar, still incomplete. there was a engine cover lying beside where the overtaped future reg "D-HXFB" was just readable
[D-HBTB] BK.117D3 white/red colours. Another new D3 version was towed outside. No idea on c/n or operator but the colours looked quite nice.
[D-HCBB] EC.135.3H all white. Inside hangar (c/n 2097)
[D-HCBO] EC.135T3H RThaiAF engine test (c/n 2130)

Finally there was a unmarked EC.135 towed outside of the paint shop. But it had the two-tone blue colours of the japanese police.
An unidentified camouflaged Heer BK.117D2m was visible in the back of the hangar.
