2 Bell 412 helicopters this afternoon, with Cameroon registrations (TJXEM and TJXSA). One in camouflage and one in a grey/black color-scheme. Both carried a "B.I.R." logo that I can't identify. Also, I can't find any info on the Cameroon Air Force operating Bell 412s! On the boxes with tailbooms, rotors, blades, etc the -possible- construction numbers were written: 36522 and 36524.

Does anyone have more information on these choppers?

The "B.I.R." part of the puzzle is solved, "Battalion d'Intervention Rapide":

I've found some more informations about those choppers :

"Monday 2 Brand new AB412 for the Cameroen air force arrived from Luxemburg by truck at Ostend. Today both helicopters departed to Cameroen inside a B747 of Air Bridge Cargo"

Hier is a link to airshows.be. I hope you can open it : http://www.airshows.be/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=8130&p=75777#p75777
