Eurocopter EC-135P-2+, 9A-HBA & 9A-HBB
The second EC-135 for the Croatian Police cooling down after its delivery flight, being kept company by its stablemate 9A-HBA (delivered a month earlier). Flying under the temporary reg EC-030 during delivery, this machine was manufactured in 2008 and initially intended for Spain's Guardia Civil (HU.26-14) (like HBA, which was known as HU.26-15). Never taken up, both machines were stored for five years until their sale to Croatia.
