Luchtmachtdagen 2019 Volkel June 14-15
Latest update: September 2018
After three years of absence the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF) announced it will organize the Luchtmachtdagen 2019 at Volkel Air Base. The air show will be held on Friday and Saturday June 14-15. The last edition was organized at Leeuwarden Air Base in 2016.

At this time it's far too early for confirmed participants. These will be added when published however it's safe to assume the below RNLAF aircraft will be presented to the public (unless operational commitments prevent participation).


In 2019 eight F-35As will be delivered to the RNLAF. Six will roll off the production line at Forth Worth, Texas and be delivered to Luke AFB, Arizona where they will join a fighter squadron within the 56th FW. The other two will roll off the FACO at Cameri, Italy. AN-9 is the first F-35A produced in Italy and is scheduled to make its first flight on July 19.
