NATO Air Policing press tour

Uploaded on Monday 22 October 2018


On September 12, 2018, over 20 international journalists experienced first-hand how NATO helps to keep Allied airspace safe by conducting Air Policing, a peacetime 24/7 collective defence mission. A Belgian Air Force A-321 airplane flew from Melsbroek Air Base near Brussels, Belgium to the Combined Air Operations Centre in Torrejon, Spain and back. During the flight, several Allied fighter aircraft simulated intercepts of the airliner.

Footage includes in-air footage of simulated intercepts, video from inside the Combined Air Operations Centre, as well as an interview with Lieutenant General Ruben C. Garcia Servert, Commander of the NATO Combined Air Operations Centre in Torrejon, Spain.
