Firefighting aircraft on Tuesday carried out training manoeuvres in Larnaca to enhance coordination between crews ahead of what is expected to be a difficult fire season.

The exercise is usually scheduled earlier in the season but the coronavirus crisis and restrictions in movement had forced delays. Four small airplanes, and five helicopters were expected to take part in the exercise.
