Saw this being unveiled at Farnborough last week, albeit the mock-up as security was heavy at the Finmeccanica stand so I couldn't get anywhere near it even though I had a business pass, and apologies for my not so detailed photos.

They are even better than mine. Well, the same situation happend again as last year during the Le Bourget with the AW149. It was also "heavily guarded", although the AW149 was at least closer to the general public.

Was in Orlando last week so up close and personal up to another mock up last week at Heli Expo.....this time got a good insight into the capacity of this new beast from Verigate. Though AW won't release any tech data such as speed as yet. First prototype they said will fly next year.










Cheers :)

So far we have mostly mockup photos:

AW149: http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,12516.msg60627.html#msg60627
AW169: http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,10534.0.html
AW189: http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,13302.0.html

...so I decided to share some of my photos of prototypes. Not often seen in formation flight.
