Helicopter Spotlight for Kissimmee, FL
The Lockheed Martin VH-71 Kestrel is a variant of the AgustaWestland AW101 (formerly Eh401) built to replace the United States Marine Corps' Marine One U.S. Presidential transport fleet. It was developed and built by the Lockheed Martin–led \US101 Team of Lockheed Martin Systems Integration – Owego (LMSI)AgustaWestland and Bell Helicopter. In February 2009 President Barack Obama asked Secretary of Defense Robert Gates about placing the project on hold or canceling it because of its high cost: over $13 billion for the planned 28 helicopters. In June 2009 the U.S. Navy terminated the contract after spending about $4.4 billion and taking delivery of nine VH-71s. The helicopters were then sold to Canada for $164 million for use as spare parts for its fleet of AgustaWestl and CH-149 Cormorant search-and-rescue helicopters.
