The Belgian air force F-16 fighters deployed at Emari airbase in Estonia will conduct low-altitude training flights this week, reports Interfax-AVN message of the military department of the republic.




"The planes will fly at altitudes no lower than 500 feet (152 meters) and will stay away from populated areas," the report said.

As explained in the main headquarters of the Defense Forces, "NATO states allocate for exercises and training, including for low-altitude flights, certain parts of their airspace."

In Estonia, flights are also coordinated with the department aviation and JSC “Service of aviation communication”.

It is reported that four Belgian F-16 fighters arrived in Estonia on September 5 in rotation to patrol the airspace of the Baltic countries.

According to the decision of the NATO Council, the aviation of the countries of the alliance with 29 March 2004 of the year began to protect the airspace of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, since these republics do not have their own fighters.

        It is probably very sad to be maaalennnky, nothing deification and forever offended. We, living in a gigantic, beautiful country, cannot understand all the complexes of the Baltic states. It’s just right to feel sorry for them, but I don’t want to.

      Do you want to say that when entering a low-level flight at a height of not less than 500 feet (152 meters) in the range of Russian air defense, a Belgian pilot may experience an involuntary defecation weighing 5 pounds (2,26 kilograms)? bully

          It is unlikely that they will fly at such a height .. Afraid!
          An unexpected incident occurred during the NATO Spring Storm exercises in Estonia. Several Alliance soldiers entered private property of an Estonian farmer in the village of Ohepalu in the Laene-Virumaa region. The farmer met the fighters with a gun in his hands and fired a warning shot into the air. There were no casualties as a result of the incident, but now the 56-year-old villager faces a fine, or imprisonment for up to five years under the article “on serious violation of public order”.

    Estonia wants to attack Russia; imperial ambitions haunt everyone.

    I can imagine how Estonian citizens will be happy at the remote farms. They will have to thank when they stall

    Having the legacy of the USSR and perhaps something Russian, in general, all this is knee-deep, let them fly first and break their neck.

    will stay away from settlements

    Interestingly, by their standards, "far" is how much? 100 meters? I have not been to Estonia, but I don’t think that there are places where to fly at low altitudes by jet aircraft. Again on some sort of farm in the chicken coop fly.
    four Belgian F-16 fighters arrived in Estonia

    And this crow crow into the nozzle!
