Video: What's it like to fly in an air force jet?
Ever wonder what it's like to fly in an air force jet? We sent one of our video journalists to live the experience together with Estonian Air Force pilots during Ramstein Alloy 2021, a NATO Air Policing exercise.
The Estonian Air Force uses its L-39 Albatros jet trainers to assist other Allies in NATO's Baltic Air Policing mission. These jets trained alongside other Allied aircraft as part of exercise Ramstein Alloy, an annual series of air policing exercises that takes place three times a year, once in each of the three Baltic countries. The 2021 iteration coincides with the 60th anniversary of NATO's Air Policing mission, a regular peacetime activity that safeguards the skies over the Alliance 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
With respect to COVID-19, the pilot, the aircrew and NATO videographers followed Estonian government guidance, which did not require wearing face masks.
