Donauwoerth Heli (EDPR) 2022 CIV/MIL

Post by spottervito »

Happy new year to everybody!
Today I made my first visit to Donauwoerth this year in glorious weather.
As usual I keep my photos in a google album. If you are interested, you can join the album and will get automatic messages when new pictures are uploaded etc.

On with the log from today:

Donauwoerth 19/01/2022
74+61 Tiger UHT Heer Testflight as "Limit 02"
78+01 NH.90TTH Heer/IFAZ. Shortly outside of F8 when 78+39 was towed in.
78+39 NH.90TTH Heer/THR30
79+28 NH.90TTH Heer/IFAZ towed into F8
84+59 CH-53G Lw/HSG64 (inside E7)
84+97 CH-53GA Lw/HSG64 (inside E7)
84+98 CH-53GS Lw/HSG64 engine test, later into E7
85+08 CH-53GS Lw/HSG64 (inside E7)
89+64 SeaKing Mk.41 Marine/MFG5 (inside E7)
[98+49] Tiger UHT Heer. Testflight as "Redfox 5". C/n confirmed as 1049, making it ex 74+49
[D-HADA] BK.117D3 all black with golden cockpit frame. Production flight. C/n unknown.
[D-HADB] BK.117D3 primer (C/n 21096). By the way, the primer BK117 are usually for export to Airbus USA so it might be a UH-72B
[D-HADQ] BK.117D3 all silver VIP colours with various stripes. "Mercedes Benz style" Has the same colours as D-HBKM/21040 or VP-CAZ/20049. So it might also be registered as VP-...
[D-HBKA] BK.117D3 all bright yellow, engine test (c/n 21091). Obviously another french rescue helicopter
[D-HBKV] BK.117D3 red/black colours with a emblem on the door consisting of two mountains or something similar. If someone recognizes the logo, I would be happy to hear. It made a production flight as "Redfox 25", the c/n is 21099
[D-HBKX] BK.117D3 REGA f/c. Future reg. "HB-ZQO" visible under sticker. I thought the order for REGA was an upgrade from D2 to D3 version, but this one is obviously a new helicopter or it received a new registration. Time will tell.
[D-HBTG] BK.117D3 primer (c/n 21092), towed outside of D10
[D-HCBK] EC.135.3H blue/black colours with several stripes. Production flight as "Redfox 27" (c/n 2165)
[D-HCBN] EC.135.3H all white (c/n 2169) engine test
[D-HCBQ] EC.135.3H primer (c/n 2166). Towed from D10 into C9/3
D-HCBS BK.117D2m Airbus (c/n 20259)
--- BK-117D3 all white. This one (c/n 21074) from a box nearby has lost its test reg D-HBTE and sits inside delivery hangar C9/1.

[D-HADN] BK.117D3 all white. Production flight as Redfox 7. Later towed into D10/1
[D-HBKC] BK.117D3 all bright yellow. Outside on the ramp. C/n might be 21093 but this needs final confirmation
[D-HBKK] BK.117D3 Svensk Luftambulanse. Production flight as "Redfox 11". The future swedish registration of this last new D3 for Svensk L.A. was readable under the sticker: SE-JXF. C/n is 21095.

[D-HCBI] EC.135.3H primer, c/n 2168. Outside on the calibration platform
[D-HCBN] BK.117D(3) noted in the back of D10. Might be the same colourscheme as D-HBKM which was noted last year, but this needs to be confirmed. was hard to see inside the dark hangar.
[D-HCBQ] EC.135.3H primer, c/n 2166. Flown over from Ingolstadt as "Redfox 20"
D-HTSC EC.135T3 Airbus testbed, towed outside of C10 for engine test (c/n 0832)
plus an unidentified colourful white/blue/red helicopter in the back of D10. Partly readable was "135" in the tail, might be a part of the registration but I guess I will need to see it outside to be sure.

Furthermore two boxes were towed outside of F8 with equipment for NH.90NFH 79+62. The boxes were clearly marked "NGEN012 / SN1473" so we need to update the c/n for this one: It has been previously reported as 1472, which is obviously wrong.

Hello Alex,
on 28th of Feb. D-HBKY was outside in primer with c/n 21117 painted on it. Therefore D-HBKZ can not have c/n: 21117.

[D-HADH] BK.117D3 all dark yellow, black cockpit frame. Noted in the back of D10.
[D-HADT] BK.117D3 all dark grey. Production flight as "Redfox 10". C/n confirmed as 21077. This one has disappeared for 4 months. It was last noted in November 2021.

[D-HCBC] EC.135.3H Kyodo Mainichi Newspaper. Parked in hangar C7. Its future registration was reported to be JA02MK
[D-HCBG] EC.135.3H (Juno HT.1) RAF. I managed to catch a long-distance view of what must be a new Juno HT.1 of the follow-on order for the
RAF. The panels were not fitted so the c/n was readable but it was hard to read over the distance. But most probably it is 2175 with a little possibility of 2179. Unfortunately it disappeared inside the hangar D10 before I could get closer.
[D-HCBN] EC.135.3H all white engine test. C/n confirmed as 2169.
[D-HBKY] BK.117D3 primer, parked in hangar D10/4 (c/n 21117)
-- BK.117D3 all black with small white stripe in the tail. From colours this must be ex D-HADA. The testreg was removed but the future registration could not be seen. Was parked in hangar C9/3, looking ready for delivery (it might be one for Brazil as well, a brasilian flag was blowing at the entrance next to an Austrian one!)

[D-HADB] BK.117D3 Omani Police (?). This helicopter definetely made my day today! I managed to catch a glimpse of it inside hangar C9 when D-HADT was being pulled out. It was in a three tone desert camouflage with an Omani flag on the tail, visible under the german flag. Under the test reg a small part of what can be an "A" was visible so I guess it will get a civil registration A4O-...I think it will go to the Omani Police and not the Royal Air Force of Oman because all RAFO helicopters usually carry serial instead of A4O- registrations. Anyway, a real surprise as I did not read anywhere that they placed an order for H145! The c/n must be 21123, there were boxes with equipment beside it.
[D-HADF] BK.117D3 all dark blue (towed into D10/2)
[D-HADH] BK.117D3 all dark yellow with black cockpit frame. Engine test. c/n 21119
D-HADQ/(4L-CCC) BK.1117D3 this helicopter was doing a demonstration for the customer here and doing several local flights as "Redfox 26". Later it was flown back to Ingolstadt where the pilot traing takes place as "Redfox 22". (c/n 21062)
D-HADS BK.117D2 Airbus (towed from C7 to C9 (c/n 20005)
[D-HADT] BK.1177D3 all dark grey. Production flight as "Redfox 11". It might be a military helicopter as well since it was parked in hangar C9 next to the Omani H145 where usually military equipment is being fitted. (c/n confirmed as 21077)
D-HADW BK.117D3 Airbus. Local flight as "Redfox 10" (c/n 20002)
D-HADX BK.117D3 Airbus (c/n 20001). Parked in corner of the ramp. Now carrying "Patria" titles on the door.

D-HCBS BK.117D2m Airbus (inside C9)
D-HECM EC.135P3 Airbus testbed (primer/c/n 0886). Engine test
-- H160 c/n 0024. The main fuselage part of this helicopter was noted being towed along the apron into C8 and back. In and on itself no surprise, because the H160 fuselages are being built at Donauwoerth. But strange is the c/n for me: I thought the H160 have c/n in the 1... range? Maybe someone with deeper knowledge on the c/n system can tell me...

Alex, I agree that the H160 c/ns are in the 1... range. Perhaps the number 0024 is just a fuselage number, or an internal 'Donauwörth' number.

Thanks for your comment Jos. Wait and see!
But I remember I saw another H160 fuselage where the "correct" H160 c/n was painted on (1008). Maybe they changed the system...
