Aircraft Update : Bell AB412 1.5 by X-Trident

X-Trident have done another small update to the Bell AB416. In reality this update is just another bit of fine-tuning with the only new items being for the SAR scenarios (ground operator, life boat, optional ambulance, random positioning, improved animation).



Now you get a paramedic by the patient in the hard ground position, and the co-ordination system allows you to place them where you want them. An Ambulance can also be standing by, but the ambulance texture quality was not great at my settings.



Out on the water and the ground position turns the patient into a floating lifeboat with a strobe light that can be seen from a far distance.


This is now certainly the best SAR rescue set in X-Plane, great ideas and great animation...  The AB412 is not too bad either!.

For more complete information on how the SAR system works then read X-PlaneReviews AB 412 v1.4 update review.
