AgustaWestland unveiled the second Super Lynx 300 production aircraft destined for Malaysia in a ceremony at the show yesterday.


Malaysia has ordered six -300 variants to replace its Westland Wasps and will become the first export customer for the aircraft.

Richard Case, managing director of AgustaWestland, shook hands on the deal with Dato Najib Tun Razak, the Malaysian Minister of Defence.

Malaysia confirmed the purchase in 1999 under a contract worth £100 million ($150 million) to AgustaWestland. Six Malaysian companies are involved in providing a range of aerospace products and services, including manufacture of components for the Lynx programme.
