This helicopter was constructed in 1967. It served in the US and Canada before it was imported to Sweden by the Bell dealer Ostermans Aero AB back in 1975. Seven years later, in 1982, Norrlandsflyg purchased the machine. They needed the helicopter for its abilities in external loads as well as transporting a larger number of passengers in the same machine. SE-HGA
was sold to Osterman Helicopter AB in 1988. It crashed due to an engine problem a few weeks later, and was sold to USA.
