On Sunday evening, three new F-35 aircraft landed at Ørland Airport.

In total, Norway has now received 28 aircraft.

The planes took off from Fort Worth in Texas on Saturday and landed at 6:40 PM on Sunday.

“It’s always great to receive new aircraft. With more planes, get the opportunity to fly more in Norway.

We can then also continue increasing the number of people who work with weapons system – pilots, operational support personnel, and technical personnel,” Lieutenant Colonel Tron Strand, the new commander for the 332 Squadron, said in a press release.

The Air Force has so far received 21 aircraft in Norway and seven aircraft in the United States.
