Japan Coast Guard Helicopter Seen In France

Mon Aug 13, 2007 4:45 am

I was on vacation in southern France, some weeks ago. During that time, we went to Marseille airport to do some planespotting.
There was a helicopter from Japan Coast Guard , a Super Puma, which landed at the airport..
It's sign was: F-WWOT.
So what's that about? Will it be delivered to Japan, or why was there a Japanese Helicopter at a french airport?

Quoting Wolverine (Thread starter):
Will it be delivered to Japan

Most probably yes, Pumas are built in southern France and F-WW.. are test registrations.

Take a look at Marseille airport on googleearth and you'll see the helicopter factory down the runway off to the eastern part of the facility.
Is my Pan Am ticket to the moon still good?
