Delivery with a difference for Med-Trans

Bell Helicopter has reported on making an aircraft delivery with a difference when it handed over a 407GXP helicopter to Med-Trans Air Medical Transport recently.

The manufacturer said: “To celebrate the occasion, a typical, run-of-the-mill delivery ceremony wasn’t conducted, but rather to keep it true to its HEMS mission, we were proud to host a blood drive at our facility with Marsh Regional Blood Center and Med-Trans’ Tennessee-based Wings Air Rescue. For those who attended they had a chance to check out Wings Air Rescue’s Bell 407 on display. More than 25 people donated providing 20 units of life-saving blood.
