Danish pilot in F-35A

A couple of translation errors?.

First Flyvevåbnet pilot flies F-35A Lightning II

On 14 January 2021, the first Flyvevåbnet (RDAF, Royal Danish Air Force) pilot flew the Lockheed Martin F-35A Lightning II at Luke Air Force Base (AZ). The pilot, Lt. Col. KIN, took off at 14:56 hrs LT in an F-35A of the 308th Fighter Squadron Emerald Knights, serial 15-5189, the 308th FS flagship.

The first RDAF Lightning IIs are expected to be delivered to the 308th FS in April 2021. The first F-35A is expected to arrive in Denmark in 2023.

In addition to taking the title as Denmark's first F-35 pilot, KIN has also managed to take off as a 49-year-old and land as a 50-year-old. Due to the time difference to Arizona, it is already 15 January 2021 in Denmark, when he lands the aircraft back at Luke AFB after an hour and a halve.half

In addition to be the first Danish F-35A pliot, Lt. Col. KIN is also head of the Danish F-35 pilot training at Luke AFB and will act as an instructor on the F-35A.

According to the RDAF, the Danish F-35As will show some colour as a tiny bit of dark red hue combined with a light gray shade instead of white is added to the grey aircraft. Gray is Americanese for grey, as correctly spelt later in the sentence.
