As I explained in a previous post, many helicopters have been overflying Rome because of the G8 summit being held in L’Aquila. For this reason, when on Jul. 10, I heard the characteristic noise of the blades on a chopper orbiting above my house I thought it could be one of the helos involved in an escort flight. However, when I grabbed my camera I saw that it was another (interesting) machine: the EC135T-2 of the Polizia Municipale. The Polizia Municipale is the municipal police Rome that performs public order duties. The helicopter, serialled I-HUNK (owned by EliFriulia http://www.elifriulia.it/index.php) and based in Rome Urbe airport, is used for traffic control duties and it is often spotted overflying the GRA (Rome beltway). The aircraft has replaced the I-HIFI, another EC135T-1 of the Eli Friulia, that the Rome Polizia Municipale has returned to its owner.
