Danish Fighters Arrive at Ämari ({{commentsTotal}})


Four Danish F-16 fighter jets landed in Estonia, turning Ämari air force base into the second NATO Baltic Air Policing mission base.

Estonian Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas told ERR radio in Ämari today that the jets are a symbolic message from Estonia's allies that "Estonian security equals NATO security."

The jets will join those stationed in Lithuania on the Air Policing mission. The Ämari mission will last four months, and is likely to be extended.

A support crew of 60 arrived a few days earlier.

Th US sent one airborne company to each Baltic nation at the beginning of this week. The 150 men will stay in Estonia until at least the end of the year.
