The Netherlands Will Receive First F-35 in 2019

The first JSF jet fighter aircraft will arrive in the Netherlands in 2019. The Netherlands will buy eight aircraft a year from 2019, taking the total to 37. The first of the jet fighters will be stationed at the airforce base in Leeuwarden. Later, the base at Volkel will also be equipped to take them. The JSF is replacing the current fleet of ageing F-16 jets. Most of the JSFs will be used for training purposes and to defend Dutch air space. Just four will be available for military missions abroad.
