Thunderbolt Digital Edition - June 2021

Hello, everyone and welcome to the June 2021 issue of Luke AFB Thunderbolt! Royal Danish air force partners took to the skies in Fighter Country, achieving a milestone in the F-35 training program by using a Denmark-owned F-35A Lightning II for the first time in a training flight. “It’s truly remarkable to come into a fighter squadron in which a U.S. pilot might fly a Danish jet alongside a Dutch pilot flying a U.S. jet,” said  Lt. Col. Matt “HAIL” Cisar, 308th Fighter Squadron Commander. This level of integration demonstrates how F-35 partner countries are preparing to execute their mission as one unit when called upon. We have full coverage of this story and much more news, in this month’s issue of Luke AFB Thunderbolt.
