Well, here are the first 2 Bell 505'2 on the African continent that have arrived at NAC, FAGM. Will be interesting to see what these aircraft are like and how they do here in SA.

Not sure if they are a glorified Roooobinson's or not :thinking: but in any case a new type for the Great Danish to add to his impressive list methinks :haha:

Taken at the beginning of June at FAGM when the Highveld encountered some really misty and foggy mornings. We only managed to get airborne after 10am :thinking:

Eish those B505's have to be the absolute ugliest helicopters I've ever laid my eyes on, even the Russian stuff have better looks...
