Bell Helicopter Textron Inc.


"The documents relating to this license have been so heavily redacted by OFAC that it is impossible to tell what was authorized. A company spokeswoman, Karen Gordon Quintal, said Bell Helicopter had received this and another license because it needed 'to store property of Iran and Iraq that Bell had possession of in the United States on the dates, respectively, when the assets of those countries were frozen. These licenses were required to enable Bell to store the assets, consisting principally of spare parts, in Bell’s U.S-based warehouse facility. Bell continues to store that property.'"
