British F-35B jets have joined British Typhoon jets in an effort to reinforce NATO air policing efforts in Eastern Europe.

RAF fighter aircraft are patrolling NATO airspace over Poland and Romania currently.

The Royal Air Force say here that the Lightnings from RAF Marham joined the Typhoon jets taking part in pre-planned Enhanced Vigilance Activity, “a NATO led Operation initiated due to the unfolding events in Ukraine. This activity provides air policing of NATO airspace ensuring a robust response to the Russian aggression seen in Ukraine and further contributing to the security of Europe”.
