New LifeFlight Eurocopter!

This HoustonSpotters EXCLUSIVE is a pre-unveiling picture of N452MH, the just-delivered 2007 EUROCOPTER DEUTSCHLAND GMBH MBB-BK 117 C-2. Eurocopter has recently renamed it the EC-145 to differentiate it form the BK-117.

This shot was taken of the first of six ordered, prior to it being stocked for its medical mission. Life Flight pilots are transitioning to the new all glass cockpit aircraft and it should be operational in a few months. Hermann Hospital's Life Flight program started in 1976 as America's second air medical program, flying the SA319B Alouette. Today, it flies three BK117s and a B0105.
