    Under the Cockpit Update Program (CUP), the aircraft's communication, navigation and information systems were upgraded so that it meets international aviation standards.

    The delivery of the (K)DC-10 contributes to filling the European gap in air-to-air refueling, said Lt.Gen. Alexander Schnitger, chief of the RNLAF.
