Watch: France flies Baltic skies


France's armed forces have produced a great little video showing their Mirage jets in operation over Baltic skies as part of NATO's Baltic air policing mission.

The Mirage jets are operating out of Lithuania's Siauliai airbase and can regularly be seen soaring overhead to intercept unidentified Russian aircraft in the vicinity.

As previously reported by LSM, France and Germany are currently responsible for Baltic airspace as part of the rotting mission.

The Mirages are stationed in Lithuania with German Eurofighters in Estonia providing coverage too.

There's even a soft piano soundtrack as the flying Frenchmen show off their skills!
