The first Action Aviation MD Explorer returning from the Middle-East was N3ND,
still showing its Saudi Red Crescent Authority livery while being shipped through Schiphol.
Four MD Explorers have been operating with Action-Aviation on a SRCA contract, but during
March 2010 things went wrong and the contract was cancelled. Early May 2010 a new SRCA contract
was signed by Abu Dhabi Aviation who will start operating with four Bell 412EP's and two Agusta-Westland 139's.
