The newly delivered 14 Agusta Westland EH-101 helicopters are now being made operational in the Royal Danish Air Force. Pilots and mechanics undergoing intesive on-the-job training.

Mid September it was scheduled to have the Merlin Joint Supporter make its first landing on the command and support ship ESBERN SNARE. The ship was visiting Aarhus at the time of the event, and according to the released pictures, all went well during this first landing.

The Command and Support ships of the ABSALON Class have hangar and support facilities for two EH-101 sized helicopters, and are intended to carry one or two EH-101 helicopters in the TTT-version (Tactical Troop Trans-porter) during participation in international operations.
