Another one of those gorgeous little 90s airport exclusives that was never widely available.

I have to tell you a secret... I still build helicopters like this, old school techniques never let you down! Nostalgic!

I really like the way the coloured lines on the helicopter are brick built. Stickers are OK, but that is very good design work

This has always been one of my favorites!

These copters are totally better than nowadays. They just don’t make em like they used to.

Four-wide aircraft for the win, forever!

This was released during my primary childhood LEGO years and yet I have never seen this set before. I'm guessing from the set number starting with 1xxx that it was promotional?

that continuing stripe is gorgeous, how much of it is brick and how much is sticker?

Slick!

Love that stripe, and also love the old way of constructing the skid, rather than that one big specialised piece they use nowadays.

I'm pretty sure I've seen this in one of Brickset's scanned catalogs, so it wasn't an airline exclusive.

I believe it was available in US and CA only, and was probably a store exclusive.

I miss those motorbikes

The striping is definitely the highlight.

I found this in a UK charity shop a few years ago, I had no idea it was a rare one! I found the colour scheme so satisfying to put together.
Anyone else find that that motorbike piece constantly breaks at the handlebars? I must have at least three of those missing one handlebar.

Pure 90's style. I like it. It's Lego.

Looks great for early 90s parts and the fact it's 100% brick built stripes.

There's even room for some cargo in the back perfectly integrated in the angled design.

Definately prefer this design over a 2019 helicopter.

123 pieces , yet so good.

I would guess this was a TRU exclusive. As a kid I was all over the Lego aisles at Target, Walmart and Kmart but rarely got to go to TRU, and I never saw this set until seeing it in the Brickset database as an adult.

Gorgeous design and I'll echo the other comments that I love how the striping is done with bricks and not stickers. This was in the final years of my childhood obsession with legos so these designs and elements bring back so many great memories.

I will say, that calling this a "security squad" just illustrates LG's over use of police and fire designs. "Let's take a helicopter we already have in the airport theme and rebrand it as police." But I guess they know what sells...

This helicopter is incredible.

I always called this The A-Team Helicopter in my head.

The Airport Security Squad (abbreviated conveniently as ASS) is here to fly around the airport, creating an extreme collision hazard for taxiing aircraft. At least the motorcycle security officer makes sense, although he looks more like ground crew to me.

The cargo space on the helo is pure '90s Lego brilliance

I always loved these 90s aesthetic sets. Even the late 90s Town Jr. ones.

Sue me.
