Diamon regresa con éxito de Iraq
Iraq Mission Complete
Royal Air Force DA42 MPP´s return to the UK
Two of the Royal Air Force registered DA42 MPP´s stopped in Wiener Neustadt en route to the UK from the Middle East area of operations.
The two DA42 MPP´s have successfully flown 2,000 hours on operations where they provided more than 99 % reliability despatch rate. The two aircraft realized a new level of serviceability in hostile environments and the extremes of weather.
For operations conducted in Iraq the aircraft are equipped with a FLIR Systems STAR Safire III camera and a number of special military communications. Using Full Motion Video day and night the aircraft provided real time imagery to forces on the ground.
On completion of the post mission “health check” by Diamond technicians the aircraft have returned to the UK operating base of DO Systems. Diamond Aircraft Ind. operates in all parts of the world performing a multitude of surveillance applications.
