NATO AWACS plane pays Rīga visit

September 11 sees a distinctive NATO Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) aircraft visiting Rīga International Airport.

"We highly value our strategic allies' contribution to strengthening Latvian and our regional security with this unique capability. NATO's early warning and control system aircraft landing at Rīga is a strong signal of NATO solidarity and unity, demonstrating a common understanding of today's security challenges and geopolitical situation,” said Air Force Commander Colonel Aivars Mežors.

It is not the first time the giant plane with its large rotating disc has touched down on Latvian soil.
