Today has been another intense day in the skies over the Black Sea. Multiple missions have taken place throughout the day. During the night, a USAF Northrop Grumman RQ-4B (reg. 11-2046 – c/s FORTE13) operated in the area, taking off from Sigonella.
This morning, a RAF Boeing RC-135W (reg. ZZ665) orbited over eastern Romania between Moldova and Bulgaria.
On the Black Sea coast, two other assets were also active: an Italian Air Force Gulfstream E.550 CAEW (reg. MM62293) taking off from Pratica di Mare AB, and a USN Boeing P-8A taking off from NAS Sigonella. Further evidence of the high level of NATO commitment in the area.
