(Source: ERR Estonian broadcasting Corp.; posted April 25, 2020)
A change of rotation ceremony of the NATO Baltic Air Policing mission will take place at the Ämari Airbase on Thursday next [April 30] where the French Air Force will take over the air policing duties performed out of Ämari from the Polish Air Force.

Due to the emergency situation declared across the country, the ceremony will be taking place on a reduced scale.

The French unit will be using five Mirage 2000-5 fighters to guard the Baltic airspace and the size of the French contingent is approximately 200 Air Force members.

The Polish Air Force took over the air policing duties performed out of Ämari from the Czech Republic on January 2, 2020.
