Two Typhoon FGR4s from the Royal Air Force have arrived in Estonia to conduct a training mission.

The No 3 (Fighter) Squadron jets have arrived to conduct air-land integration training with the British Army battlegroup that is currently deployed in Estonia as part of NATO’s Enhanced Forward Presence operation.

The Typhoons touched down in the Baltic after flying from Romania where they recently completed their NATO Enhanced Air Policing mission. After conducting training in Estonia, the Typhoons will return to the UK.

One of the Typhoon pilots, Sqn Ldr Paul Hanson, said: “This deployment proves our ability to move fast jets from NATO’s southeastern flank to the Baltic region in a matter of hours, demonstrating the flexibility of air power to reassure our Allies at short when required to do so.”
