Airbus Military delivers C212 to Vietnam Marine Police
Airbus Military has announced that it has delivered the first of three C212-400 maritime patrol aircraft to the Vietnam Marine Police, following the completion of the mission system installation in Sweden. The company made the announcement 30 August 2012.
The aircraft, originally manufactured in Seville, made the 10 day ferry flight from Sweden, where the conversion work was carried out, to Vietnam. It was handed over at Gia Lam (Hanoi). The flight, commanded by ferry pilot Capt Alejandro Grande supported by two co-pilots, two flight engineers and a technical representative, staged through: Kosice, Slovakia; Sitia, Greece; Luxor, Egypt; Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; Muscat, Oman; Ahmedabad and Kolkata, India; and Chiang Mai, Thailand; en route to Hanoi.
Airbus Military said the three aircraft will be used for a range of missions including coastal patrol, search and rescue, anti-pollution operations, and law enforcement against smuggling of goods or people.
A second aircraft is under conversion in Sweden and the third will be transferred from Seville by the end of 2012.
