Two weeks ago, a seventeen member team from the Republic of China Taiwan arrived in Belize. The team comprised engineers, technicians, mechanics and two pilots. The team was dispatched by the Government of Taiwan to assemble the two UH-1H helicopters gifted to the Belize Defence Force. Shortly after its arrival, the team embarked on the assembling works at B.D.F. headquarters. The assembling works were completed yesterday and Taiwanese Ambassador His Excellency Benjamin Ho went on a test ride.  Both Ambassador Ho and Brigadier General David Jones were satisfied with the progress of the assembling and condition of the helicopters. An official handing over ceremony for the two helicopters is scheduled for next Tuesday. Minister of National Security, John Saldivar is expected to be on hand to receive the helicopters.
