I'm OK, not involved, but not allowed to speculate, and frankly know nothing anyway, beyond what was in the papers...

Thanks for the concerns tho!
Cheers

It breaks my heart every time I hear of a Bell medium being destroyed. They're eventually gonna run out of airframes, no ?

Nope... I don't think they'll ever not rebuild one unless the data plate is destroyed... I have seen them in a condition where I thought beer cans was the obvious next phase in the old girl's life and voila!! A year or two later she's back flying... It's utterly amazing that we have people in our industry that can get them back together like that... cheers to those who do that stuff!

P.S. Commercial 205, 212, etc, is what I'm referring to. 204's and military Hueys are not so desired anymore.
