Stationed at NAF base in Kainji, Nigeria can now boost of 12 active A-29 Tucano jets in the region

The six (6) Super Tucano jets arrived in Nigeria yesterday and are fully examined to be in excellent condition and operational when deployed.

The delivery which was carried out by a team of six certified United States Pilots was delayed earlier due to weather conditions forcing the A-29 Super Tucano jets to land in Glasgow days ago.

Yesterday marked a very special day for the Nigerian Air Force and the Nigerian Military as a whole following the touchdown of the last batch of the A-29 Super Tucano Jets delivered from the United States of America.

Nigeria can confidently boost as the only country in the region to have 12 operational A-29 Super Tucano jets in their possession which was delivered within a year.

These last six (6) A-29 Super Tucano jets arrived two months after the first batch of six A-29 Super Tucano jets landed in Nigeria in line with the agreement between Nigeria and the United States of America.
