Sunsetting on the Alouette III

Despite beeing an already known decision, Leonardo has announced the Portuguese Air Force order of 5 AW119 Koala  (with an option for plus 2) to replace the good old Alouette III (check HERE)
The first units should be already delivered this year ....

With 55 years duty on the Portuguese Air Force, the remaining 6 (?) helicopters have seen a lot during all these years, from the war in Africa, and since then all the other missions in Portugal, instruction, SAR, surveillance, etc....
Maybe the sun is setting on them but, for now, I'm sure they'll still have some more to give...
