I have no idea about choppers so I would appreciate if someone could give me the model and reg of this one. I looked up on the db for a "h-88" reg. but it did not look like the same helicopter. btw, this shot was taken yesterday at AEP. Thanks in advance for everything

Quoting TupolevTu154 (Reply 2): Notice the lack of the large fin above the cockpit on the "new" c/s aircraft?
The technical term for such a fin is "antenna," and it has clearly been removed since the helo was photographed back in '04. In fact, judging by the modified nose evident in the more recent shot, it was probably re-accommodated there.
