VH-BLL (2)   Bell 47J-2A1 Ranger                             (c/n  1824 )


                                              As viewers of this collection will have observed, I am not overly enamored of rotary wing types!
                                              Nevertheless they are registered as aeroplanes and hence I am duty bound to include them.
                                              Clearly this one was registered VH-BLL for 'Bell'.  The above shot, from the Geoff Goodall
                                              collection, was taken at Mangalore, Victoria  in January 1968, while the chopper was in the
                                              service of Jayrow Helicopters Pty Ltd. .It had been re-registered from VH-UTP in June of the
                                              previous year.  It was retired from use in 1983.
