The ORNGE debacle goes on…  Ron McKerlie, interim chief executive officer of Ornge, confirmed to the Canadian press on Friday that the previous management had quietly ordered two more AW139s with taxpayers money without any announcement either in Canada or within the helicopter industry.  The pair had not physically been brought to Canada, or fitted out as air ambulances – McKerlie said “They were purchased with the idea of making quick cash”.

HeliHub.com has investigated this further.  The pair are believed to be serial numbers 41258 and 41259, neither of which have reached the Canadian register.  They are currently stored at the Agusta Aerospace facility in Pennsylvania, we understand.
