Hi KL,

On the first pic of your Bell - is that what they call a wire cutter above the windscreen?

Would that be a B206L or just a straight B-206

Those spikes in front of the nose on the top and botton, are the wire strike protection system, and yes they are for curring cables (Hopefully).

The helicopter is a straight Bell 206 B III, its 1982 Helicopter, in great, great shape. Prior to me it was owned by another person (And only one), and he was also the pilot.

THe 206L, is a little bit larger, specially longer, it can fit an extre 2 persons, and has a bigger engine (at least in horse power).

The 206 B you see in this picture, although its not the original configuration (Bell 206 STRAIGHT!), its a newer version (Bell 206B 3) and its the latest version created. Meaning that there is not a 206 B 4 or anything.


Hope it helps Smile

Thanks for that - I now see the cutter on the bottom side of the nose too.

We have a Long Ranger at Dragon Helis which in the absence of a B206 is hired out at the same rate as the ordinary JR - it's the one I flew across to Europe last Sept (G-LIMO) and is a great machine to fly. You are lucky to own one!

Great pics.

I think i am the luckiest person in the planet, just for being able to fly this baby.

In reality, i wont rest my bones until i will buy a brand new 206 L4 or a Brand New 407.

that's my dream...

Yup.. I am a bell lover.
