Denmark gives major update on when first F-16s may arrive

Danish Defense Minister Troels Lund Poulsen said that the country would be able to deliver the first F-16s to Ukraine in March-April 2024.

"We expect that in March-April we will be able to deliver the first batch of combat aircraft to Ukraine. But there is still a lot of work to be done so that Ukrainians can operate them," he said.
