Ukraine War: Denmark Prepones Retirement Of F-16 Fighters; Starts Training Ukrainian Pilots On Fighting Falcons
the retirement of the F-16 fighters will now take place in 2025 instead of the previously planned 2027
This adjustment is attributed to the fact that the replacement fighters, F-35s
can be phased in and made operational earlier than anticipated.
This does not mean that you cannot make a decision beforehand
But (the F-16 planes) will be in Denmark until 2024
June 2016, Denmark entered into an agreement to procure 27 F-35A jets
intended to replace their more than 40-year-old F-16s.
Currently, Denmark operates 30 operational F-16 planes
