For Denmark's Security

Denmark joined the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program in 2002 during the System Development and Demonstration phase and has influenced technical elements of the F-35. In October 2008, they delivered a Danish F-16 to the JSF 461st Flight Test Squadron at Edwards AFB as part of the RDAF’s partnership with the F35 program and the F-16 served as a chase plane for the F-35 Development, Test & Evaluation program through Dec. 2016. In June 2016, Denmark confirmed plans to procure 27 F-35As.

Lockheed Martin and the Danish Armed Forces have enjoyed a successful partnership since the early 1950s, with the T-33 Shooting Star, F-104 Starfighter, C-130 Hercules and the F-16 Fighting Falcon. Denmark is an essential partner in F-35 production, development and sustainment activities and today, is building parts and components for the projected 3,100+ aircraft to be manufactured.

For Danmarks sikkerhed

Danmark blev en del af F-35 Joint Strike Fighter-programmet i 2002 og har været med i udviklingen af flyet. I oktober 2008 blev et dansk F-16-fly sendt til Edwards Air Force Base for at deltage i F-35-testaktiviteter som en del af Flyvevåbnets partnerskab med F-35-programmet. F-16-flyet var en del af udviklings-, test- og evalueringsprogrammet for F-35 frem til december 2016. I juni 2016 valgte Danmark at anskaffe 27 F-35A.

Lockheed Martin og Forsvaret i Danmark har haft et stærkt partnerskab siden begyndelsen af ​​1950'erne med flyene T-33 Shooting Star, F-104 Starfighter, C-130 Hercules og F-16 Fighting Falcon. Danmark er en vigtig partner i produktionen, udviklingen og vedligeholdelsen af F-35 og bygger i dag dele og komponenter til de mere end 3.100 planlagte fly, der skal fremstilles.
