Eagles safeguard Baltic sovereignty

Alert F-15Cs from the 493rd Expeditionary Fighter Squadron respond to an alert scramble notification at Siauliai Air Base, Lithuania, Sept. 4, 2017. The F-15C is uniquely suited for the Baltic Air Policing mission with its capability to detect, acquire, track and intercept opposing aircraft while operating in friendly or rival-controlled airspace at distances beyond visual range down to close range, and at altitudes down to treetop level.
