    At the exercise, which is held three times a year, air force members will practice leadership and communication procedures as well as carry out air policing exercises in the Baltic airspace, military spokespeople in Tallinn said. The Estonian Air Force and the Amari airbase have a central role to play this time. French air policing jets stationed here as well as Lithuanian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, German, Norwegian, Polish and Dutch air force members and aircraft are to also take part in the exercise.
