Join an F-16 pilot on a low level mission over Greenland with a GoPro
HQ video with RDAF F-16s low level over Greenland ice sheet.
Here’s another interesting footage filmed with GoPro cameras of a Royal Danish Air Force F-16 flying along the ice rim east of Kangerlussuaq, to the DYE-2 radar station, over the icefjord near Ilulissat, over the inspectionship Knud Rasmussen, and over the town of Ilussisat where the polar explorer Knud Rasmussen was born.
The RDAF deployed three F-16s from the Fighter Wing Skrydstrup to Greenland. Only two aircraft were fitted with 600 gal extra-tanks borrowed from Portuguese Air Force and and these two (with arctic-day glow missiles – the remaining aircraft was probably a spare) deployed north to Thule AB and south to Nuuk (Greenlands capital).
H/T to Eggert Norðdahl for providing some more details about the RDAF deployment and to John Kristensen for the link to the video
