TALLINN - To mark Victory Day on Tuesday, June 23, four Robinson R44 helicopters of the Estonian defense forces are carrying out a joint formation flight around Estonia on Monday.

The helicopters started their flight from the Amari air base at 12 p.m., spokespeople for the Ministry of Defense said.

Usually, a parade organized by the Kaitseliit (Defense League) volunteer corps is held on June 23 to celebrate Victory Day, but this year it became clear already at the beginning of May that the parade cannot be organized due to the spread of the coronavirus.
