    Posted by Nicholas Fiorenza 4:12 PM on Apr 19, 2012

    The Luftwaffe has produced a nice video of its F-4F Phantoms scrambling at Siauliai air base in Lithuania. The fighters belonging to Jagdgeschwader (Fighter Squadron, abbreviated JG) 71 "Richthofen" have been the latest four-month rotation of NATO's Baltic air policing mission beginning January 4.

    JG 71 has also been conducting NATO air policing of Iceland since last month.

    These will be some of the last deployments of the F-4F, which will be retired from service next year.
