Bell 429 Global Ranger   msn: 57006

N911ED, "Mercey One", Mercy Medical Center / Air Methods Corporation.
On 24 March 2010 this Bell 429 was delivered to Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa.
Air Methods was the launch customer of the Bell 429 and since 2004 it had Letters of Intent
for buying 15 units, but in February 2010 it decided not to convert these other LoI's in firm orders.
They would take delivery of only one unit and instead would buy 12 new Eurocopters.
However, during July 2012 Air Methods announced ordering a second Bell 429.
