The Royal Danish Air Force (RDAF) is debuting in the Farnborough International Airshow flying and static display with its new F-16 Dannebrog aircraft.

The ‘Dannebrog’ has been out of the sky for over six months and a new F-16 aircraft with the tail number E-006 has been selected to succeed the E-191, which is now in military grey and heading to support Ukraine. The theme for the E-006 is still the Dannebrog, but in a new and refreshed livery scheme, which also includes elements celebrating the 50th anniversary of the F-16 aircraft type’s first flight in 1974. In addition to displaying the Danish flag at global events, similarly to the E-191, the E-006 will spend a majority of its time on training missions and operational tasks.

Discussing the RDAF’s debut, Captain Troels K. Dehli Vang, said: “We are incredibly excited to be flying and attending the Farnborough International Airshow for the first time. To be able to fly our flag with our new Danneborg in the UK at the most international airshow in the world is a proud moment for the Royal Danish Air Force.

Taking place 22-26 July 2024, the trailblazing Farnborough International Airshow will see global aerospace and defence leaders return to Hampshire, United Kingdom, for five days of unrivalled opportunities to discover the latest pioneering technology and engineering, announce historic partnerships, and collaboratively work towards the cumulative sustainable aerospace vision.
