… off Funchal

Milirary exercise

A military exercise is taking place this morning in the Socorris area that involves the commitment of various military assets, whether by land, air or sea. Zarco 23 has been running since the 13th and today has its high point with a simulated approach to a suspicious ship. At the moment (11:30) residents of Funchal with a good view are being treated to a couple of F-16 fighter jets performing manoeuvres out beyond Praia Formosa

As the images collected by the Diario demonstrate, the Air Force helicopter attempts to approach the ship, removing an injured soldier from the naval environment, recently boarded, and there is also the presence of other means of the Portuguese Air Force such as F-16 aircraft.
