Italian Air Force HH-139B

An Italian Air Force HH-139B belonging to the 82nd CSAR squadron of 15 Stormo based at Trapani air base is currently in Malta to conduct a training exercise with the Armed Forces of Malta Air Wing.

Besides its training commitments, last Sunday the HH-139B carried out a series of flypasts over important landmarks in Malta that have ties with Italy, such as the Maltese Grand Harbour. These flypasts were made to commemorate Italy’s Republic Day, celebrated on the 2nd June.

MAR visited the AFM Air Wing this morning to get up close and personal with the helicopter and its crew and get to know more about this training exercise.

A similar event also took place last year. You can read more about this on the following link:…/aeronautica-militare-hh-139b/
