This originally Agusta-owned Bell 206L1 was one of the first LongRangers in the UK after Ferranti's G-BFAL.

Alan Mann operated I-CDVM (above) for about a year between '82 and '83 when the craft was registered as G-BKGG prior to being returned to Italy.

Out of curiosity .. did Agusta ever manufacture the 206L? My understanding is that they did but .. I have never seen one!
