Unusual mission over Bosnia

An unusual mission is underway for an Italian Air Force P-72A (reg. MM62279, callsign EUFOR88).

The aircraft, which took off from Sigonella, is in fact orbiting Bosnia. As you can guess from its callsign, the mission is being carried out in support of the Althea mission, formally the European Union Force Bosnia and Herzegovina (EUFOR).

The P-72A is not only a maritime patrol aircraft but can also acquire information on targets, the geographical situation, the weather situation and the position of contacts.
