Norway sends 2 fighter jets to Denmark for Ukraine training mission

OSLO: Norway will send two F-16 fighter jets to Denmark to help to the training of Ukrainian pilots on the use of the US-made airplane, the Norwegian defence minister said on Wednesday (Jan 3).

F-16s have been on Ukraine’s wish list as the country seeks to boost its air force in the war with Russia, and Norway last year said it would join Denmark, the Netherlands and others in sending aircraft.

Norway has already sent 10 teachers to Denmark to aid the education of Ukrainian pilots, Defence Minister Bjoern Arild Gram said in a statement.

The Norwegian air force has replaced its own F-16s with the replacement model F-35.
