This MD Explorer was in August 2007 being offered for sale by Action Aviation,
from the United Kingdom. The heli was the second unit to be delivered to the Dutch Police,
but this order was cancelled in March 2005. The picture clearly shows the extended tailboom
modification, which was an issue in the Dutch Police contract.
