The Nigerian Navy has intensified its counter piracy and counter trafficking operations against sea pirates in the Gulf of Guinea and Niger Delta region in order to combat sea crime.
In the video, the Nigerian Navy Agusta 109E helicopter flew at a careful altitude and maintained uniform speed while maneuvering its way to the flight deck of NNS Okpabana in order to have a smooth landing.
The NNS Okpabana is a high endurance cutter with a crossing range of 9,600 nautical miles at 20 knots and a flight deck making it the best naval platform for extended patrol missions.
The regular maritime patrol and surveillance missions by the Agusta 109E and NNS Okpabana has made the Nigerian waterways relatively safe for international trade and transportation.
Watch the video of the Nigerian Navy Agusta 109E helicopter landing on the flight deck of NNS Okpabana.
