New Sentry mission

After a couple of mission done over Aegean Sea today this NATO Boeing E-3A “Sentry” (LX-N90459) departed from Preveza AB is orbiting over Ionian Sea.

We don’t know the nature of this flight but maybe it’s releated with NATO Operation Sea Guardian.

Operation Sea Guardian is a non-Article 5 maritime security operation aimed at working with Mediterranean stakeholders to maintain maritime situational awareness, deter and counter terrorism and enhance capacity building.  

Some of the tasks include: supporting maritime situational awareness, upholding freedom of navigation, conducting interdiction tasks, maritime counter-terrorism, contributing to capacity building, countering proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and protecting critical infrastructure.
