New colours for RDAF F-16

On 1 October 2020, the Flyvevåbnet (RDAF, Royal Danish Air Force) celebrated her 70th anniversary. For this occasion, the air force showed F-16AM, serial E-005 (construction number 6F-48), in a new F-35A Lightning II style colour scheme.

On 27 May 1950 , the Danish Parliament passed by Act no. 242 that Denmark should have an independent air force. The RDAF came into existence as a merger of the Army Air Corps (Hærens Flyvertropper) and the Naval Air Service (Marinens Flyvevæsen) on 1 October 1950.

Unfortunately, E-005 will be the only F-16 painted in these new colours.
