Two Royal Air Force Typhoon Aircraft from 3 (Fighter) Squadron have arrived in Estonia to conduct a training mission.
The aircraft have arrived to conduct Air Land integration training with the British Army Battlegroup currently deployed in Estonia as part of the NATO Enhanced Forward Presence Operation.
The Typhoons having transitted from Romania where they have just completed their NATO Enhanced Air Policing mission, will be carrying out this training before returning to the UK.
Squadron Leader Paul Hanson, one of the pilots said “This deployment proves our ability to move fast jets from NATO’s south eastern flank to the Baltic region in a matter of hours, demonstrating the flexibility of airpower to reassure our Allies at short when required to do so.”
