German Army Bo105

The German Army acquired the Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm Bo 105 as an anti-tank and observation helicopter. Extremely agile and bestowed with good performance from its twin Allison 250 turbine engines, it proved an excellent aircraft for both roles, so-called 'nap of the earth' low-level flying being the type's preferred environment. Today the much more modern Eurocopter Tiger has taken over as the German Army's front-line attack platform, but the Bo 105 still serves on communications and liaison duties, as well as in the training role. De-armed examples of the Bo 105 PAH attack helicopter are flown today, not least by the Heeresfliegerwaffenschule (School of Army Aviation), which will contribute examples of the Bo 105P1 for the flying display and static park. While the school is headquartered at Bückeburg, its Bo 105s are flown from Celle.
