Narrative Summary

After the US invasion of December 1989, the existing Panamanian Air Force had been disbanded. Another air force was formed as part of the Fuerza Publicas Panameña (Panamanian Public Forces), as Servicio Aérea Nacional (National Air Service) with 16 fixed- and rotary-winged aircraft organised in three operational squadrons and one presidential flight.
