Thanks to Dario COCCO for this beautiful image of the factory new Agusta A109C 3A-MSG operated on behalf of Monacair …  resting at Milan Malpensa, May 1991.

Returned to Italy few days ago as N876VJ and showed up at Eurotech facility in Caiolo (SO) to perform some dedicated maintence activity. Thanks to Emanuele GHIROLDI for the picture of the Agusta A109C N876VJ showing the current paint scheme of the helicopter.

I-MFMM – Helicopter History

Some new images are now available, as part of the historical area of the website, related to the Agusta A109C I-MFMM operated in Italy, on behalf of Fainofarma, from February 2005. After three years in the Italian Register the helicopter was cancelled towards Ukraine as UR-ACCV, in August 2008. This A109C was originally delivered from the factory to Monacair in 1989 as 3A-MOR.
