Albania to receive surplus US Black Hawks
Albania is to receive three Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk medium-lift utility helicopters from the United States, the country's defence minister, Olta Xhacka, announced on 8 April during an interview with the Tirana-based TV station Vizion+.

Xhacka said the acquisition will be part of a US military aid package for Albania that will be signed off during her visit to the US.

The helicopters will be second hand but in very good condition, Xhacka noted, adding that they will enhance Albania's military capabilities and modernise the country's air force. ... lack-hawks
