Is the Ilmavoimat still participant in FF 2020?

The Finnish Jägerbrigade cancelled their visit in Norway in “Cold Response“ starting tomorrow.

Corona Virus also in Friesland now. Hopefully it can be contained. In Noord-Brabant many events are already cancelled because of this Virus.

keeps an eye on Leeuwarden's Twitter.

In an answer from them this morning:
We're monitoring the current situation, of course. For the time being, Frisian Flag continues. Should this change due to current events, we will communicate this.

Surprised that it isn’t posted here yet but I hear that FF is cancelled due to the Corona situation.

Can anybody confirm?

Maybe because it is not officially announced like was mentioned here in the last post before you?

Nope. Probably they will concentrate on cancelling the many hotel reservations and informing participating air forces first before telling the rest of the world.
