I also thought the intention was to withdraw the 4 TTHs and update the 4 NFHs. :shock:

Doesn't make sense to withdraw the NFH now the Alouettes are gone as well.

None of them will be WFU. One is onboard of Leopold I, one is in maintenance and two are SAR OPS.

Government and Chief of defense confirming closure of Coxydes Air base not earlier then 2025.
But no word about retiring of the NH-90s : those would be transfered to Oostend.

Correct. The four NH-90NFH's will be transferred to nearby Ostend.

Kind regards,
