This aircraft arrived a couple of days ago with transponder problems and it spent a few days at the airport waiting for a new one. A couple of days before that, this frame left Sweden, but encountered lots of problems already, including a fored landing in a field in Sweden. The aircraft was piloted by 2 former US Marines, very cool and nice guys, full of good stories about their experiences with this aircraft. It was ferried to France for a check-up, before going to Arizona for a refurbishment. After that, it is expected to be flown to Africa to perform Medevac/SAR duties.
