      The AB-139 livery will be much the same as the EC-135's

          Unknown yet...but will do research...

          Anyway...it has been reported that CHC Scotia are taking over the UK coast guard role in 2007...anyone like to hazard a guess on the machines they are going to operate...?


          S92s...alongside AB139s..touch of irony don't you think.

          This was posted in a UK shipping magazine this week.

              Very interesting article from Janes on franks board. Of most note to me was that the decision on the two 139's on option, has to be taken by the end of 2006. The first two aircraft will come on stream in the august timeframe, and the next will arrive in early 2007. This doesnt leave a lot of time for assessment, hopefully it was just some form of inducement by the DF for Augusta to get the Aircraft delivered quickly and once that happens they'll place the order for the two options. Although part of me shudders to think they either wont exercise it or only buy one further example. Either way, if an order is placed this year it'll be 2008 before the 5th and 6th 139's would come into service.

                  good job Goldie :wink: .

                  Options on a further two AB139s need to be exercised before the end of 2006 to secure the contracted pricing. Should this occur, delivery would be expected in 2008.
                  Whats the odds of the DF actually exercising the option for 2 further aircraft in time and saving itself a few quid Better luck with the Euro Millions

                      It seems JP Mc Manus has gone and ordered an AB139(or 2) for himself too. Thats handy if we need spares....
                      Handy for him too I'm sure..

                        This page ... http://www.dgualdo.it/prod-ab139.htm has 6 Ab-139s down for the Ac, including the two on option. However, they've also recently added two new serial no (280 and 281) to their list.

                        Is this just a guess on their part, or has there been some form of announcement that we've missed?
