The King Air tail Number OY-CVW belongs to Jonas Vingeaard, the recent winner of this year’s Tour De France. The reason for the F-16 response? It is a tradition in Denmark for athletes upon winning a major sports event. No one truly knows how this tradition in Denmark started, however these people were super excited to welcome Jonas Vingegaard home for a massive celebration in Copenhagen as cycling continues to grow across Europe.

With the King Air branded out with logos like a NASCAR they were aware how much attention his return home would get!
