This is Mihail Kogălniceanu’s fourth rotation of the British Royal Air Force, after those executed in 2017, 2018 and 2021.

The air police missions carried out jointly since 2017 and planned in the year before the deployment of the detachments, contribute to the development of the reaction and deterrence capacity, as well as to the consolidation of the interoperability between the Romanian Air Force and the allies.
