Department of Defense Spokesman Lt. Col. Garron Garn provided the following statement:

On February 21, 2024, the Air Force Capability Coalition (AFCC) Steering Group met to discuss progress of Ukraine's F-16 program, including the AFCC's work to train the Ukrainian Air Force to operate, service, and maintain F-16 fighter aircraft. AFCC members coordinate to meet the requirements to ensure Ukraine receives a fully functional F-16 capability, including Denmark's initial donation of aircraft in the summer of 2024, and other Allied donations later this year. The AFCC reaffirmed its unwavering support to help Ukraine protect its skies.
