Two F-16’s of the Royal Danish Air Force fast response team scrambled towards the private plane of the Jumbo-Visma team’s Danish rider Jonas Vingegaard, winner of this year’s Tour de France.

In Danish airspace, Vingegaard’s aircraft, a Beech 300 Super King Air 350 registered OY-CVW, was intercepted by the fighter jets. A tradition for athletes winning a major sports event.

After landing at Copenhagen, Vingegaard disembarked from the aircraft sporting his yellow jersey.
