 MEXICAN AIR FORCE BUYS 10 MD 530F HELICOPTERS
 MESA, Ariz. July 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mexican Air Force has


purchased 10 McDonnell Douglas MD 530F helicopters.
 The helicopters will be used for internal paramilitary, search and rescue and training exercises in Mexico. Deliveries will begin within 90 days of a completed contract, according to Juan Martinez, manager of business development for Latin America for McDonnell Douglas Helicopter Co.
 "The MD 530F has special capabilities for operating at high altitudes and in hot temperatures," Martinez said. "This makes it ideal for operations in Mexico's mountainous regions."
 The MD 530Fs will supplement the service's existing fleet of helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. The value of the sale, which is the largest for Model 500s in several years, was not announced.
