Six Spanish Air Force Eurofighters arrived at Mihail Kogalniceanu Air Base in Romania on Monday (25 January 2021) to take up two months of NATO air policing duty, patrolling and training alongside the Romanian Air Force. NATO’s enhanced air policing mission in Romania was established in 2014, demonstrating Allies’ commitment to deter any possible aggression. This is the first time that Spain has participated.
