Peru buys Dutch AB412 search and rescue helicopters
An agreement has been reached between the Dutch and Peruvian governments on the sale of three Agusta-Bell AB412 SP helicopters.
The helicopters were stationed at Leeuwarden Air Base and at Vlieland and were tasked for search-and-rescue SAR missions, often for the NATO air forces exercise area north of the Netherlands.
The aircraft doubled as air ambulances for islanders in the vicinity and as coastguard assets. janes
