Agusta Bell AB.206B JetRanger 8204 has been repainted and mounted on a pole by the Polismuseet (Police Museum) in Stockholm.

The aircraft was the second of a batch of 11 delivered to the Swedish Navy in 1970. In naval service, the AB.206B was designated Hkp 6B – 8204 was coded ‘45’. The helicopters were withdrawn from use in 2004. JetRanger 8204 was stored at Berga until transferred to the Polismuseet – which has operated helicopters for 55 years. It’s now painted to represent SE-HPB, which was delivered to the Swedish police in 1967, and exported to New Zealand in 1995. JAN FORSGREN
