Protecting Poland?

The NATO AWACS (Airborne Warning and Control Systems) aircraft was recently seen over Jarocin, flying east. Information was received from internet user aras66 who also sent in some photos of the plane. Responding to the Ukraine crisis, NATO head Anders Fogh Rasmussen said last week that NATO has agreed a package of military measures in order to reinforce the defence of the eastern members of the alliance. “We have agreed upon a package of further military measures to reinforce our collective defence and demonstrate the strength of Allied solidarity,” Rasmussen told journalists, after a meeting of the North Atlantic Council. He reminded journalists that NATO has already taken a number of similar steps, including enhancing air policing in the Baltic States and AWACS surveillance flights over Poland and Romania. “We will have more planes in the air, more ships on the water and more readiness on the land,” he added. Rasmussen also said that there would be increased air sorties over the Baltic Sea, with additional ships both in the Baltic and the eastern Mediterranean and elsewhere, should the need arise.
