Armed Forces of Malta takes delivery its first brand new helicopter, an AW-139

Today is a historic day for the Armed Forces of Malta (AFM) as for the first time in its history, it received a brand new multipurpose helicopter, an Agusta Westland AW-139, designed specifically around the operational requirements of the service. Visibly happy, AFM personnel inspected their new aircraft once it landed at the Malta International Airport a few hours ago. For logistics officers involved in this EU co-financed project as well as for operational airmen, it was a very special day seeing a brand new helicopter gracing the apron of their base.
