Pre-1950?[edit]

While the current air force may have been formed in 1950, Denmark operated military aircraft back to the early years of the first world war, and yet no mention whatsoever has been of this prior (and very relevant) history, which either should be on this page, or on a linked page mentioned in the opening paragraph.NiD.29 (talk) 00:15, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

It is mentioned in the second and third paragraph in the History-section that before the air force, were the Hærens Flyvertropper (Danish Army Air Corps) and Marinens Flyvevæsen (Danish Naval Air Service) which were merged in 1950 to form the Royal Danish Air Force (RDAF). The same text was also there a year ago. I don't think it is necessary to put this info into the opening text, when it features so prominent in the history-section. In kind regards Heb (talk) 01:53, 11 May 2012 (UTC)
What I meant was that there history section started with the purchase of Spitfires and then the Nazi occupation, rather than the start of the history of the organization that the page is about. The aircraft are by definition secondary to the organization, otherwise this page would be named "Aircraft of the Royal Danish Air Force". I reorganized the start of the history section so it actually makes sense.NiD.29 (talk) 15:56, 11 May 2012 (UTC)


The Draken isn't mentioned[edit]

The SAAB Draken which was in service between 1970 and 1993 being retired slightly early due to the cold war ending isn't even mentioned. 37.247.12.181 (talk) 05:13, 4 December 2017 (UTC)
