Video: See the Nigerian Navy Agusta 109E helicopter landing on the deck of NNS Okpabana

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.

A video of an Agusta 109E helicopter of the Nigerian Navy landing on the flight deck of Nigerian Navy Ship (NNS) Okpabana has surfaced.

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 Agusta 109E Power helicopter is a lightweight, twin engine multipurpose helicopter built by Italian manufacturer, Leonardo S.p.A.

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.
