Greek Helos Flooded

The helicopters of the Greek Army's 1st Army Aviation Brigade stationed at Stefanovikeio Air Base were flooded after heavy rainfall.

Greek sources claim that some helicopters could not fly due to lack of maintenance and therefore could not evacuate.Ö

Looks like the one in the hangar was down for phase maintenance maybe, the one on the flight line should be fine, just re-pack landing gear wheel bearings with new grease. The gun will obviously need a bit of service being submerged but would think salvageable, depending on how long it sits there.
