New Bell 429s for NEMA and Police, and a Bell 206 for NCAT

Three new helicopters arrived at Lagos Airport this week. A Bell 429 EMS (5N-NEM) for the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), as well as a Bell 206L-4 (5N-BZC) for the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (NCAT), Zaria, where she will join her sistership 5N-BZB. The third, hidden chopper, a Bell 429 (5N-MDA), is the first of five helicopters of this type for the Police Air Wing.

    The Third Bell, hiding behind in the pic is c/n 57084 and is in Nigeria Police scheme.

  2. Igbosere bomber says :

    The third (white) helicopter is either a Bell 206L4 Long Ranger or a Bell 407. The easiest way to tell the difference is to see if it has 2 or 4 rotor blades, another way is to see if the horizontal stabiliser is square (206L) or V shaped (407)
    For a helicopter buff, it’s actually very easy :)

  3. Igbosere bomber says :

    The Rolls Royce Phantom must be for the Chief Pilot surely?? :)

  4. Donspony says :

    What’s with the Rolls Royce though?

  5. clive says :

    The Rolls Royce was here in Lagos but is back at the airport and is being shipped back to whence it came. No reason known for this though! It will be leaving probably today as it was loaded back onto a dolly when I was leaving the airport.

    Two better pics of the Bell 429’s are now available…
