The RAF Typhoon detachment deployed to Amari air base in Estonia at NATO’s request on 1 May this year, operating alongside Norwegian aircraft to secure NATO’s airspace over the Baltic nations of Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania which do not have their own air defence fighters.
On 25 August, at the concluding event in a series of commemorative occasions at Amari 121 Expeditionary Air Wing (EAW) handed over to the German 31st Tactical Air Wing.
Commanding Officer of 121 EAW, Wing Commander Stu Smiley said:
121 Expeditionary Air Wing has played a vital part in ensuring that the UK continues to play its part in the NATO mission of securing the Baltic airspace. Everything we do in the RAF is to protect, uphold and defend the UK, its allies and its interests and thanks to the commitment and professionalism of my team, without a doubt we have fulfilled that mission.
U.S. F-22 Raptor stealth jets currently in Germany to move to Poland on Monday
It looks like the F-22s may move to Poland. Soon.
According to the Polish Media outlet Głos Wielkopolski, the U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor fighters belonging to the 95th Fighter Squadron, from Tyndall Air Force Base, that arrived at Spangdahlem airbase on Aug. 28, will be deployed to Poland next Monday Aug. 31.
The U.S. jets are going to be involved in joint training with the Polish F-16 fighters and information published by Głos Wielkopolski suggests that the Raptors are going to be stationed at the Polish 32 AB in Łask (a news confirmed by the base spokesman according to Scramble).
The arrival of the four F-22s marks the beginning of the inaugural Rapid Raptor package deployment in Europe: the type has often taken part in rotational deployments in the Asia-Pacific region since 2009, to show the presence of Washington’s 5th generation stealth jet around the disputed islands in the South China Sea, while some are also taking parting in the air war against ISIS.
Some analysts speculate the Raptors were not deployed in Europe earlier because of the risk of close encounters with Russian ELINT jets above the Baltics and the resulting disclosure of some sensitive information pertaining the Raptor, a risk the stealth jet face all around the world, actually.

US Air Force F-22 Raptors fly over the flight line at Lask Air Base, Poland
WARSAW — Two US F-22 Raptor stealth fighters landed in Poland on Monday as regional tensions run high over Russia and the conflict in Ukraine.
The arrival of the two planes was aired on TVP Info public television channel. They flew in from their German base of Spangdahlem into the Lask Air Base in central Poland.
Poland borders war-torn Ukraine, where government troops have been fighting pro-Russian separatists since April last year, in a conflict that has claimed the lives of nearly 7,000 people.
While the conflict eased after a truce in February, fighting has escalated in recent days.
The fighting has stirred the highest tensions since the Cold War ended more than two decades ago as the West accuses Russia of not only arming the rebels but sending in troops to support them. Moscow denies the charges.
The F-22 is virtually undetectable by radar. It became operational in 2005 and was used in combat for the first time in September last year in strikes against Islamic State jihadists in Iraq and Syria.
The US Air Force has a fleet of about 180 F-22s.
