Ambassadors join forces in support of the Eurofighter

Once again the replacement of the Belgian Air Force’s fleet of F-16 fighter jets is at the eye of a political storm. Should we opt for the F-35 or would the French-built Rafale best suit our armed forces’ needs? The Ambassadors of the UK, Germany, Italy and Spain believe that Belgium should buy neither, but instead opt for the Eurofighter Typhoon that is built by a European consortium. The UK’s Ambassador to Belgium Alisson Rose and the German Ambassador Rüdiger Lüdeking came to the VRT’s morning news and current affairs programme ‘De ochtend’ to explain why.
