Bell 222
Permalink  
 


I was hoping people could share with me what they could on the Bell 222, thoughts, history, pilots thoughts, and variants. I would love to see pics that aren't posted everywhere if possible since it is my all time favorite helicopter. Here in Las Vegas, we had Bell 222U's as medical transport through Mercy Air. Unfortunately, Mercy is phasing these out for the AW109. no I was also thinking someone could help me, I found once online a 3 view of the T tailed prototype. I have googled a ton of times and haven't found it again. Would anyone have this and pictures of the various prototypes? I hope I am posting in the right place. Kindest regards, Jeremy

Thank you very much, that certainly is unique and to me, it still looks good. IMHO, a 222 always looks good regardless of what's thrown on it. :)

Thanks Pepper! What's the story on the first one? She almost looks like a production model!

What do you mean? Are you saying this is the book you were asking about in the book section?

It's "Bell Aircraft Since 1935" by Alain J. Pelletier (part of the Putnam aviation book series).

Yes, I think it is, but is there any other pictures of the 222 in the book? If I saw those, I would be more sure. I could be wrong and if I am, I fully admit my mistake but that picture and the layout looked very familiar.

There is really no need to insert the piccies into the posts since the attachments are fullsize when clicked on (the view image link below them, not the main slideshow view). ;)

Another shot of the T-tail prototype, plus an ad it was featured in, from a 1970's issue of AHS-Vertiflite:

You never cease to amaze me with your finds. Would you happen to have any of the mockup?
