Strange helo

Hi guys, over the past few weeks I've noticed a helo flying around the south east, it could best be described as A109 ish in shape & size but with CH46 size sponsons. Its light coloured and very noisy. Anyone tell me what it is?

I initially assumed it might be the new Aer Corps AW 139, but it doesn't seem to match.

Maybe a Sikorsky S-76, there were a good few in the country for the Ryder Cup.....

Having Googled all the suggestions (apart from the R22... ahem) JFH with the B430 would seem to be the most likely, I hadn't noted the tail planes, if I see it again I'll be more attentive & will report back.

Thanks all,
