Wiltshire's emergency helicopter gets a new, mellow yellow lick of paint

The Wiltshire joint police and air ambulance helicopter has undergone a cosmetic change.

The colours remain the same but there is more yellow than navy blue. The lettering is also in a different place, towards the back of the cabin. Graham Saunders, executive officer of the Air Support Unit at Wiltshire Police, said: “The helicopter is ten years old and the paint work was getting tatty. To protect the fabric of the aircraft Police Aviation Services decided to respray it at no cost to us.”

I'm not sure it really matters who paid for the re-spray. As long as this necessary piece of lifesaving equipment stays up where it belongs then who cares ?
