  • New BlackHawks for the Chilean Air Force.

    Last July, the Antonov An-124 belonging to the Volga Dnepr company, which was transporting from Poland the new S-70i BlackHawk (designated locally as MH-60M), arrived at Pudahuel Air Base in Santiago de Chile.

    During these last weeks the helicopters have been subjected to test flights by the Sikorsky, to be later officially delivered to the Chilean Air Force.

    It is expected that by October of this year the following 3 Blackhawks will arrive to complete a total fleet of 7 Blackhawks (The Chilean Air Force has since 1998 an S-70A donated by the American Government for the loss of the UH-1H helicopters in the peace missions in Kuwait in the 90's).

    If someone has information or pictures of the test flights of the next 3 BlackHawks would be appreciated.

    Greetings, and have good photos.
