On Monday, a United States B-52 strategic bomber flew low over Tallinn.

Sigrid Pukk, spokesperson for the Estonian Air Force said: "Today, a United States bomber B-52 flew over Estonian airspace. It was a cooperation exercise involving the Estonian Defense Forces, after which a 360-degree formation flight was taken over Tallinn."

The bomber was accompanied by a French Mirage 2000-5 and a British Eurofighter.

The U.S. has allocated more than $100 million worth of military assistance to Estonia over the last years. Close to 150 training exercises and other events are held a year, with over 60 of those involving stationed U.S. military members in Estonia.

The B-52 also did a flyover in Tallinn in October of last year.
