On November 7, a Royal Danish Super Lynx Mk 90B conducted the first ever helicopter deck landing on the first-of-class Swedish corvette VISBY inside the Naval Base in Frederikshavn.

This was followed by an estimated 20 deck landings the next day outside Frederikshavn, where the Swedish ship should train helicopter deck landings at high speed and in rough sea.

The main purpose is to train the Swedish crew in helicopter operations, and get detailed SHOL (Ship Helicopter Operation Limits).
