Nice photos.

It looks like the one of the left is a Bell 206 Long Ranger, the one on the left is a S-76C and the one in the middle is a variant of the Bell 212, Bell 412 or a former UH-1. Not sure which it is, does someone know more about this aircraft?

Hooker, I looked it up in one of my aviation books and it says that heli(middle pic) is a Bell 214ST medium duty helicopter.

Not many 214ST's around. One beast of a helicopter.

Thank you. I don't think I've seen one of those before.

Our (PHI's) 214ST's are going away before too long. Bell doesn't support them with parts very well anymore. We've had one grounded for a couple of months waiting on parts for a repair.

I used to work offshore in the Gulf of Mexico in the late 70's-early 80's and rode PHI a lot... Thanks for the memorys!!! Most often in 206 or 206L's, but also 212's, 214's, 412's, and a S-76. May not all of them PHI. The S-76 was brand new and all gloss black.. on the way backfollowing the beach from Aransas Pass we ran into 3 ArmyblackHawks going somwhere and the race was on!! The pilot said we were doing 200 Kts!! We were about a quarter mile abreast and flow probably 15 minutes like that. We landed in Galveston at the airport instead of the heliport and came in like a airplane... no hover. The crew let us out and popped the engine cowls to let her cool down! Lots of fun times back then.
