First flight of Denmark's F-35A jet.

Lockheed Martin today announced the first flight of Denmark's first F-35 Lightning II production aircraft, L-001.

Denmark is the fifth European NATO nation to fly and operate an F-35. It is joining four other European nations who already operate the F-35: the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Norway and Italy.

L-001 is scheduled to be delivered to the Royal Danish Air Force in April and will be flown to Luke Air Force Base, Arizona, later this year for pilot and maintainer training. F-35s will arrive in Denmark in 2023 and be based at Royal Danish Air Force's Fighter Wing Skrydstrup where it will safeguard the skies over Denmark and its NATO allies.
