I believe I saw this Bell within the Menzies warehouse today, no registration
visable though, but I did not really check either.

On Monday it was still parked at KLM Cargo.
The registration was difficult to see due to the cargo in front of it.
I think its Italian.
What looked like I-ED.. was painted in a large format on the aft fuselage, but still hard to read.

The Italian 407 most likely has been I-ECGX,

Op 13 April zijn op JNB twee Bell 407GXP's waargenomen die uit een KLM CARGO 747 werden gelost.
Volgens een bericht op FB zijn beide voor National Airways Corporation.

Hiya,

A Bell 429 chopper is sitting on a pallet in front of Vrachtgebouw 3, visible from Handelskade (1415lt).
I checked the plate and it gives the Manufacturer's Serial No. as 57280

A week earlier also a grey/primer Bell 429 was seen on the same location. That one was 57240.
After painting and completion, both will be delivered to Air Transport Europe, Slowakia.
