Transportwing 61 Transall 51+01, "60 Years TW 61 - Silberne Gams"
printsize: DIN A3
High value 250 g/m2 silky luster paper poster at the size of DIN A3 (420x297 mm, 16 1/2 x 11 3/4'', DIN A2 and DIN A1 optional) with aircraft scheme and textual descriptions. All texts in german. DIN A2 and DIN A1 versions are optional, and will be printed after reception of the order which means a delay of ca. 1 week for the shipping. Backgroundstory Transport Wing 61 was based at airbase Penzing located close to Landsberg in Southern Bavaria. The idea for this special painting to the 60th anniversary of Transport Wing 61 did this time not - as very often - come from an inspired member of the wing or a tasked professional designer as e.g. for the 50th anniversary of FBW 32, but was born one evening when sitting together in the officers club. The basic idea behind it was the desire for a so called retro-look, which expresses the look of the prototypes or the first delivered birds to the user. Because a grinding down of the black an green color to the aluminum skin of the fuselage was not possible a two layer white-metallic paint was brought above the old one. The whole airplane shows except the black-red-gold of the german flag no other colors with the silver and black design. This is even true for the bavarian colors on the rudder.The airplane's nickname "Black Chamois" comes from the stylised chamois on the tail, which is actually the haraldic animal of the wing (see wing patch).  On the front part of the fuselage near the front entrance door the logo of the anniversary is introduced in black and silver on both sides. It shows a big 60 and beneath it the (former) operational transport aircraft types of the wing, a C-47 "Dakota", a "Nora" Noratlas and of course a C-160D "Transall". Underneath the airplanes is the transport helicopter Bell UH-1D "Huey" shown which was flown many years at Transport Wing 61. Transall's 51+01 long history started with short ops times at TW-63 in Hohn before it served more than 35 years at TW-62 in Wunstorf. A periodic inspection brought it in 2016 to Bavaria, to the Maintennance Center 11 (InstZ 11) in Erding. Since TW-62 transfers completely to the new Airbus A-400M the airplane was given to TW-61 for the rest of its days which will end in around 2018. In 2017, the anniversary year of TW-61 it had reached more than 14.000 flying hours an more than 15.000 landings.
