Four F-16 fighter-jets of the Danish Royal Air Force will commence a four-month shift to replace their US colleagues who patrolled the Baltic skies with four F-15 fighter-jets. The official contingent changeover ceremony is scheduled for next Monday.

The NATO Baltic air-policing mission is conducted from Lithuania and Estonia, with various NATO countries providing their capabilities for four-month shifts. This will be the sixth time for the Danish Air Force in the mission since Lithuania joined NATO in 2004.

In the Amari base in Estonia, Danish aviators will be replaced with Italian airmen with Eurofighter fighter-jets.
