Jordan Gets 5 More Special-Ops Black Hawks

By James T. McKenna | November 13, 2007

Sikorsky Aircraft has completed delivery of eight UH-60L Black Hawks to Jordan. The Middle East kingdom's Special Operations Aviation Brigade has been using the Black Hawks for special operations and border security since the first three were delivered in mid-2006. The remaining aircraft were delivered to Jordan last month. The aircraft were part of a foreign military sale structured through the U.S. government. The Royal Jordanian Air Force has flown Sikorsky aircraft since 1987 and today operates five UH-60/S-70As in its Royal Squadron. For related news
