MBB Kawasaki BK117 flew on this day 1979

Happy birthday to the BK117C1 which made its first flight 41 years ago on this day. Since then its morphed into the C2 - EC145 and D2- H145


I remember in the 1980s Jane's annuals, the civil 117 was listed under 'International' but the armed versions under MBB in 'West Germany", due to those awkward Japanese export laws.
