In the series two helicopters were used. The first helicopter with the registration D-HECE was borrowed from the DRF (Deutsche Rettungsflugwacht). When the D-HECE was not being used for the series, it flew real rescue missions at DRF locations. However, at the beginning of the fifth season the DRF ended its cooperation, for unknown reasons. Later the helicopter was painted in the DRF colors (red and white). The second helicopter with the registration D-HEOE was a former police helicopter in Baden-Württemberg. After its Medicopter career it flew rescue missions for different operators like DRF, IFA (Internationale Flugambulanz) and the Austrian operator Flymed. A few times the helicopter was used for sightseeing flights. After the series it was being used as an offshore helicopter in the North Sea. See more »
Already in its fifth series, this great German show has had a long running success, and not without good reason. Although only two of the original crew members remain (Biggi and Peter), the replacements have become integral parts of the programme. Some of the original character has been lost, only to be replaced by an exuberant flamboyance not found in other similar action shows, in which a multitude of cars are blown into even more pieces, followed by the odd painful chase and the death of at least one of the characters. I wish this show a long successful future. Great work! (RTL, Dienstags, 20:15)
