His words are quoted by the Sky News channel.
According to the expert, some of the transferred fighters will be double. Bell noted that such aircraft are usually used for observation or training missions.
In addition, he added, Kyiv will have to keep part of the F-16 away from the front line in order to train the next generation of pilots.
Earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Kyiv would receive 42 F-16 fighter jets from the Netherlands and 19 from Denmark.
