To be added. Note: The name of the Danish Airforce is “FLYVEVÅBNET” or in English “Royal Danish Air Force”. There is no such thing as “Kongelige Danske Flyvevaaben”.
Aircraft Serial Numbers
The Danish military serial numbering system consists of a letter prefix and a three digit mumber. The letter identifies the aircraft type and the number is usually derived from the airframe’s construction number or previous identity. The letters are reused once a type has been retired. Where there are significantly different variants of a type in service, an additional letter is added as a suffix to the type designation letter, e.g. E-181 for F-16A and ET-207 for F-16B.
