    Four Belgian F16 fighter jets take on the role of guarding the Baltic skies.

    The Belgian air force deploys its F16 fighter jets to cover the Baltic skies during the 40th rotation of NATO’s Baltic air policing mission.

    Four jets have been deployed, operating out of Amari airbase in Estonia, with 50 personnel backing up the mission. The operation will run until the end of April.

    10. (01:56) SOUNDBITE IN ENGLISH – CAPTAIN DAVY BLANCQUAERT, BELGIAN AIR FORCE.
    ‘Our mission here is to guard the Baltic skies. It’s a NATO commitment we have. The plan is that we can take off very quickly to intercept aircraft which cannot fly into the NATO territory, in this case we are talking about the Baltic territory or the Baltic skies.’
    (02:31)
    ‘I guess every pilot in the Belgium air force he wants to be an F16 pilot. You’re alone with a very powerful aircraft, it has about 60,000 horsepower so compared to a car it gives and incredible feeling. You might encounter cloudy skies from the ground but once you take off you climb on top of the clouds and you always have the sunshine every day so it’s actually the flying itself, once it grabs you it never lets you go any more, its kind of an addiction.’
