Babcock Mission Critical Services Offshore are going through more fleet changes than most following the grounding of the Airbus AS332L2 and EC225 models. In recent weeks they have taken on four new Sikorsky S92s, but that seems to have given them a storage issue at Aberdeen.
Yesterday, Babcock transported three AS332L2 Super Pumas by road to Humberside for long-term storage, including both of the “Jigsaw” SAR aircraft, one of which is seen below. The third aircraft was in the old red Bond scheme, and our research suggests this is either G-REDK or G-REDM.
Babcock continues to store two other AS332L2 Super Pumas at Sumburgh.
