Photo Comment

In 1977 the New South Wales Police leased VH-BHS as a trial to re-establish the Police Air Wing, which had existed between 1946 and 1950 with an Avro Anson. The trial proved a success and in 1978 the NSW Police bought its own JetRanger. VH-BHS would later be lost when it crashed into the sea off Townsville, Queensland, on September 6, 2008.
