Bell 205

The Bell 205 is an advanced version of the Bell 204 used by the U.S. military forces. Following its first flight in 1961, it continued to prove its dependability with police and military forces all over the world and was used in civil aviation primarily for transporting freight and people. The helicopters in the 205 series became famous in large part due to their use in the Vietnam war.
