“One Team One Mission” is the motto of the Royal Netherlands Air Force. This motto applies to the Royal Netherlands Air Force F-16 Demo Team as well.
The team around the display pilot exists of two coaches who are also F-16 pilots, six highly skilled technical specialists and two advisors.
This team offers every conceivable support to the air display pilot throughout the entire demo season, which comprises about 30 shows in all. The team also receives full further support from their home base Leeuwarden AB and its staff wherever necessary. What sets the Dutch team apart from some other display teams is that besides performing aerobatic displays, all members are also current operational personnel of the Air Force.
They perform daily operational tasks and are deployed to operational theatres even during the demo season. This enables the team to be truly current operational representatives of the Royal Netherlands Air Force.
