The Royal Canadian Air Force CF-188 Hornet aircrafts landed at 57th Mihail Kogălniceanu Air Base two weeks ago, in order to participate in the execution of NATO-led enhanced Air Policing missions, by taking over responsibilities from the Royal British Air Force.

The Royal Canadian Air Force soldiers have been executing the third similar mission in Romania, after those conducted over August-December 2017 and April—August 2014. During their previous missions, the Canadian Detachment was engaged in multinational training exercises which contributed to the increase of interoperability between Romanian and Canadian Air Forces.

The joint enhanced Air Policing missions will contribute to the development of the reaction and deterrence capability as well as to the consolidation of interoperability between the Romanian and Royal Canadian Air Forces.
