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.

I-GLPB – Helicopter History
As part of the website historical images section, today I loaded few views of the Aerospatiale AS350B2 Ecureuil I-GLPB. The Ecureuil was delivered from the factory to Elistar at the end of May 1990 and operated until the helicopter suffered a fatal crash near Forcella del Sassolungo (BZ), the 07 January 1995, during heliski activity.
