This has to be a world first, triple switch-blade by four Henley Air four triple 2's.

I counted in total eight 222/230/430's today.

I don't get why the Bells have huge undercarriage sponsons but they are fitted with a dinky set of skids?

The original 222 had a retractable undercarriage.

The Bell 222UT has one auxiliary fuel tank in each sponson, replacing the retractable thereby increasing range and reducing complexity.

Sacrilege!!!

The Bell 222/230 has to in the top 10 of best looking aircraft let alone the fact that it's a chopper. Granted the skids do take away a bit on the looks side.
