The Flyvevåbnet (Royal Danish Air Force, RDAF) is well on the way to replacing its tired Lynx Mk90B helicopters with new MH-60R Seahawks. The last Lynx was retired on December 15 last year (see Denmark retires Lynx, February, p11) and Eskadrille 723 has now received seven MH-60Rs. Another two ‘Romeos’ are expected before the end of this year.
