Aircraft Data
S/N: 0252E
Year: 1988
Last known operator:
This helicopter was constructed by McDonnell Douglas back in 1988 and was imported to Sweden by SAAB Helikopter AB the same year. A Swedish registration, SE-HSM, was reserved, but before entering the system the aircraft was exported to Norway and given the registration LN-OCC.
It stayed in Norway for a dozen of years before it returned to Sweden in 2001, this time imported by BN Construction i Motala AB and registered SE-JGB. The aircraft was leased by the Finnish company Helitour for a while and was finally sold to Stockholms Helikoptertjänst AB in early-2003.

The company had two Hughes 300s at that time, and the MD 500 soon proved to be an indispensable addition to the fleet. It was used in all kind of aerial works, including power line inspections, sling-load operations and filming. The helicopter soon became a rather well-known workhorse among the regional construction companies, but the need for a more powerful sling load lifter became more evident. An Eurocopter Lama (SE-JNA) was acquired and thereby eased the workload for the busy MD 500.

SE-JGB was used for power line inspections, mast mounting operations and sling-load jobs until it was sold to the US in February 2016. The helicopter was replaced by an EC120.

SE-JGB left Stockholm in a container bound for the US in late February. It was soon registered N312MD with Nevada Aircraft Corp in Henderson, Nevada.
