Updated: Feb 23
From 13 until 22 May 2019 the German-Dutch Division Schnelle Kräfte operated from the German airbase Celle. Around 500 soldiers of the 11th Air Mobility Brigade, 250 soldiers of the Defence Helicoper Command and 5 CH-47D Chinook and 6 AH-64D Apaches operated together with 2250 German soldiers with 10 NH-90 TTH and 6 Tiger helicopters. The helicopters formed the Combined Helicopter Task Force.
During the two weeks exercise different scenarios were practised. In the second week a large air assault operation was flown from the Bergen-|Hohne NATO training area. A F(A)RP location was in place and manned by combined German and Dutch ground troops.
Northern Skies would like to thank 11th AMB and DHC for their hospitality!
