Bell 206 Helicopter
While driving around in the prairie, I saw this helicopter hovering very low to the ground, almost on the ground. It then began to move forward very fast, and flew almost directly overhead. Luckily I was able to get out in time and take a few pictures.
I suspect this is a Bell 206, which is a single engine or twin engine twin rotor multipurpose helicopter. They are made by the Bell Helicopter Textron company is Mirabel, Quebec. For more information, look here.
I suspect this one was flying a pipeline.
