Different c/s, same helo. As the photo in the database says, it's a Bell 212.  Smile

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.  Wink

I could be wrong, but it seems quite likely...

That's what I sw as well. So it's safe to say that its the same helo but modified a bit?

thanx for the help  Smile
