Agusta Westland HH-139A

Earlier this afternoon, an Aeronautica Militare Agusta-Westland HH-139A ‘MM81798’ landed in Malta. The aircraft will stay in LMML for a number of days, whereby it will perform a series of exercise with the Armed Forces of Malta in order to learn from each other and strengthen the ties between both air arms.

The HH-139A is a medium twin engine helicopter designed to serve as Italian Air Force’s new medium class SAR helicopter. This variant is equipped with a rescue hoist, search light, wire cutters, nose mounted FLIR, cargo hook, loudspeaker system and emergency flotation gear.
