Based in Estonia at the Amari airbase, NATO planes will work out flights over the territory of the country. This was reported by the Interfax news agency, citing the press service of the Estonian Defense Forces.
German Eurofighter fighter planes on Monday, Wednesday and Friday will fly in pairs at low altitudes (at least 500 feet or 152 meters), the report said.
"Deploying NATO aircraft in the Baltic states is part of the concept of "smart defense", which goal is to save the resources of the alliance states for joint contribution to various capacities," the press service of the Defense Forces reported.
Flights are conducted on the basis of agreements between NATO countries in specially designated areas for this purpose.
The NATO air forces are deployed on the territory of the Baltic States due to rotation process since March 29, 2004, when the countries became members of the alliance. At the summit in Chicago in 2012, the mission was extended for an indefinite period.
