You can skip the Swedish, France, Italians. They will only send observers. So no UH-60 from Sweden and also no Mi-17 (or Mi-8) from Hungary
Nice extra participant will be a Portugese EH-101.

Keep an eye on http://www.gras-spotters.nl were we will post soon more information and updates.

Gips,

Keep it to the facts Sweden, France and Italy where never on a list to send helicopters. Slovakia is sending a 60 also, Slovenia will send one Cougar.

I suspect a decision
will not be taken
before next week -or the week after that.

So, do not expect (m)any updates on "Corona" this week :|

HWIC is cancelled, but Swift Blade/Purple Nectar is not mentioned at
