Bell 212 VH-JJY Walkaround Gallery

Bell 212 VH-JJY Walkaround.

I saw this Twin Two Twelve on the apron down at Moorabbin in January 2009. Coincidentally, it was parked in the same spot as C-AFGK was in 2007 and the construction numbers are consecutive (VH-JJY: 30900, C-AFGK: 30901). The Helicorp pilot, Wayne, took me over it. He said that the dayglo orange panels are painted on for firefighting work to make JJY easier to see, and are repainted in a more corporate scheme for the rest of the year.

Helicorp have quite a fleet of choppers now including 205, 212 and 214s. VH-NNN is one of their 205s. They do a lot of helitack fire fighting work in the summer. They also run the operation that brings the big orange Sikorsky / Erickson Aircranes for the fire season.
