By Aaron Humes: The Belize Defence Force (BDF) is now the proud owner of two Huey fixed wing helicopters assembled and donated by the Republic of China (Taiwan).

As noted by commander of the BDF, Brigadier General David Jones, it has long been a dream of the Force to have this important asset for use in casualty evacuation and insertion of troops and resupply in remote areas.

It will also be loaned for use in civilian capacity for emergency situations.

General Jones noted that it will be a challenge to keep the helicopters operating but it is one they relish and take on gladly.

    Guys a fixed wing aircraft isn’t a helicopter it’s an airplane.

    Helicopters are rotary wing aircraft!
