The working life of the Bo-105 came full circle with a poignant retirement ceremony for the last of the type in service with the German Army. Kees van der Mark reports from Celle.
GERMAN BO-105 FLY OUT
RAIN CASCADED down during the flying demonstrations at Celle Army Air Base on October 19, as if even the sky was sad to see the final Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm Bo-105s go. The type served the Heeresflieger (German Army Aviation Corps) for more than 43 years, accumulating in excess of one million flying hours during that time.
