The Minnesota State Police took delivery of a new Bell 407 at a Heli-Expo ceremony on Sunday. Shown here, Captain Mary Schrader, chief pilot and captain of the flight section, accepts the keys to the aircraft from Bell CEO Mike Redenbaugh. The Minnesota State Police department has flown Bell helicopters for nearly 50 years, starting with a Bell 47, and has never had a catastrophic failure, according to chief of police Mark Dunaski.
