U.S. F35s fly into Estonia in show of NATO solidarityBy David Mardiste AMARI AIR BASE, Estonia (Reuters) – Two of the U.S. Air Force’s newest and most advanced jets landed in the Baltic state of Estonia for the first time on Tuesday, a symbolic gesture meant to reinforce the United States’ commitment to the defense of NATO allies that border Russia. The visit of the F-35 stealth fighters, which flew from Britain and spent several hours in Estonia, is part of broader U.S. jet pilot training across Europe as the NATO alliance seeks to deter Moscow from any possible incursion in the Baltics. “This is a very clear message,” Estonia’s Defense Minister Margus Tsahkna told Reuters.
