The Official Twitter of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine has released this image showing a Black Hawk with Ukraine military roundels
The blue and silver features in the colour scheme of this aircraft would suggest that it was previously on the FAA register as N60FW and was the demonstrator aircraft for Ace Aeronautics. This company’s website describes themselves thus: “Ace Aeronautics provides innovative and long-term avionic and airframe solutions to commercial and government aviation users worldwide. Ace Aeronautics offers commercial and military off-the-shelf (COTS/MOTS) products for fixed and rotary wing aircraft that provide state-of-the-art system solutions to resolve avionics obsolescence and capability gaps.”
While the imagery does not include the full tailboom where the FAA registration is/was, the colour scheme is sufficiently unusual for the HeliHub.com team to be certain it is the same aircraft – see Ace Aeronautics tweet of this aircraft.
