This helicopter came to Sweden in the spring of 2011. The aircraft left Tokyo in a carefully loaded container on 2nd of April and came to Adolfström, via Gothenburg, on 9th of May.

It was previously owned by the large Aero Asahi Corporation in Japan. Aero Asahi operates a large fleet of helicopters and fixed wing aircraft in a wide range of operations.

The down payment for the aircraft was made the day before the massive earthquake struck, which triggered the deadly tsunami that hit the east coast of Japan on March 11, 2011. The registration JOD (=Iodine) is a reminder of the tragic nuclear accident that followed the tsunami

The aircraft was formally registered SE-JOD in November 2011. It made its first take-off in Sweden (Adolfström) on November 17.
