The Bell 222 Database Version 0.4 BETA

This is a BETA release and as such it still needs more information and Photos.. I have released this to give fans the opportunity to help provide missing Pictures, PDF files and other materials for a much much larger project.

Current Main Menu
It is compatible with Windows and will work on Win2000, XP, Vista, Win7, Win 8/8.1 and Windows 10
   (it may even work on Windows 9x, i have yet to test that)
It does Not require elevated privileges in windows, It does not require firewall or internet access, It does not require any runtime such as .NET, Flash or Silverlight... and It doesn't need Installing. (you will however need a PDF viewer,  BUT ONLY  for the pdf files)

It currently contains
723 Images
5 Bell 222 Operations Safety Notices (pdf)
16 Bell 222 Technical Bulletin Notices (pdf)
7 Bell 222 Information Letters (pdf)
Bell 222 Maintenance manual revisions v4 (pdf)
The complete Bell Ducted Tail Rotor study with specs  (pdf)
other odd PDF's are also located in the docs folder..

It lacks some 222 / tail numbered images, it also lacks a Complete 222 Manual... and the 222 brochure.. send me them.. an email address is in the HELP section...

You can press  S  and search for any 222 C/N (construction number) between 47000 and 47099
The search also allows you to look up any 222 Tail Number (f.a.a registration number) and you can search for Movie names and Tv series names to find them elusive 222(s)

Search Feature

I have scoured the net using varied search engines in varied languages, so any 222 Images i am missing are probably not (maybe even never) have been online. If they where at one stage.. you could be the only person reading this with the photos i need because a lot of websites have gone over the years.

If i am missing a Tail Number then please make sure its for a 222 (not a 222B) and post the tail number in the comments section below.

If you have 222 photo(s) I am missing their is an email address in the help section you can send them too (note hotmail has 10MB limit per email) But again 222, not 222B.   If people don't help then it clearly can't go any further than it already has and as such the PDF stuff probably wont ever get a dedicated  Menu Page and will always just link to the folders with no other details (as they do now).

These are the current Construction numbers ive found (bearing varied tail numbers) but i don't have a photo for every single tail number for all these CN's shown.. so you maybe still able to help with CN's I have images for if they are tails Not already in here. Just look through your 222 Photos and search my database for the tails you photos of.. if i don't have them then send me them.....

Current Construction Numbers I Have Images For

How I have Named the Images is as follows...
A001 = A is Photos For The First Tail Number
B001 = B is Photos For The Second Tail Number
C001 = C is Photos For The Third Tail Number
D001 = D is Photos For The Forth Tail Number
And So On....  This helps work out what tail number (photos) the database is missing

You can also Right Click on the EXE and extract it with the likes of WinRAR or other archive software you have installed (to explore the current contents) via the folders rather than only a menu.
The RAR is  189.36 MB

DOWNLOAD HERE: (make sure you click the Download and NOT an Advert)
Current Build = BETA 0.4 (dated 18th JAN 2018)
