The formation should be one of some farewell formation tours with both special coloured Sea Kings together.

As weather, heli serviceability, too few available Sea King crews and the future vacation plans etc. have to be taken into account they cannot start early enough!

Re: Skrydstrup (EKSP) 2024

For 2,1 Mrd. DKK, ca. 280 Mio Euro, Argentina will buy 24 F-16 from Denmark. The aircraft will leave „in the next years“, so presumably not before 2025/26.

Re: Skrydstrup (EKSP) 2024

The F/A-18C arriving from HävLLv 11 at Rovaniemi some days ago were HN-427, HN-440 and HN-442. They are flying together with the Danish F-16.

Still making regular training missions were Belgian AF/OCU F-16BM FB-24 in special colours and 689 of RNoAF.
