F-16A Fighting Falcon
E-180 Holger Danske
In recognition of the role played by the Alliance in enhancing security in the Euro-Atlantic area for the past 50 years, 1999 will be marked by a series of activities and events in NATO Member countries and in Partner countries.
Royal Danish Air Force painted this F-16A E-180 to celebrate the anniversary.
The paint scheme is designed by Pia M. Wognsen, Tactical Air Command Denmark in 1999, and features the handdrawn national hero ‘Holger Danske’ (Orgier The Dane).
Holger Danske is asleep, deep down in the underground passages of Kronborg castle’s casemates.
He has slept for hundreds of years.
According to an old legend, Holger Danske will wake up the day Denmark is threatened by enemies.
Only then will his eyes open. He will then get to his feet and raise his sword.
