Ukraine: French jets in Estonia to bolster NATO airpower in Baltics

Russia's invasion of Ukraine has prompted NATO to step up its air policing mission over the Baltics.

Additional jets have joined the Quick Reaction Alert team, with France also sending four Mirage fighter jets out to the Amari Air Base in Estonia – bolstering a contingent of Belgian F-16s.

We went to the Amari Air Base to see some of the airpower being deployed to deter Russia and protect NATO's eastern flank.
