  • First pictures of the new Air Corps EC135's

    Hi Guys,

    I've just got my hands of the first pictures of both of the new Air Corps EC135's. Both heli's are still wearing their temporary German civil test reg and markings, the Air Corps reg & roundels have yet to be applied.

    Medium sized pictures are below, click here to see the full size pictures.






    Regards,

    Frank.

    Good work Frank. I notice they are fitted with weather radar...And is that a cable catcher I see above the cockpit?


    Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing.

      Yep, that's a cable cutter on top alright, there doesn't seem to be one on the bottom but if you look at the picture of the heli with the rotors turning it has pointy skids, maybe these form the lower part of cable catcher set up?

        Meh.

          BTW, it's great to see that the only dayglo in the picture is the pilot's flight suit.

              That's the final colour, click on this link and go to the bottom of the first page, you'll see artist's impressions of the colour schemes for both new helicopter types.

                    Hi mugs,

                    I know the picture you're referring to and it was only an "artist's impression".


                    Regards,

                          Well done Frank. They look very businesslike and appropriate for the tasks ahead.
