Love #5, & it's a very nice set, but #3 seems way oversharpened.

Great shots. Why bother putting camo on the Bell if they're going to paint the cowling orange? Kinda defeats the purpose, don't it?

These Bell 212's were, up until recently, deployed to Belize for the support of the British Army in that country. The day-glow panels are for if the Helicopter goes down in the Jungle, they can be seen easily from the air.
It also provided SAR itself when deployed in the Jungle.
