A Norwegian F-35 landed on a Finnish highway for the first time. On Thursday, September 21st, an important event took place in the history of Norwegian aviation. For the first time, two Norwegian F-35As landed on a highway in Tervo in eastern Finland. The planes landed at around 15:00 Norwegian time after participating in joint exercise Baana 23 with Finnish F-18s. American F-35Bs have landed on highways in the past, but this is the first time the F-35A has done so. Combat aircraft are vulnerable on the ground, so by being able to use small airfields and now highways, we are increasing our survivability in war,” Major General Rolf Volland, commander of the Norwegian Air Force, said in a press release. After the planes landed, they were refueled with the engines running. In March, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark signed an agreement on a joint Nordic Air Force. The future Nordic air defense will consist of more than 200 combat aircraft.
