US Lockheed Martin F-35 Lighting II jets will arrive in Estonia’s Amari air base on Tuesday, local media reported Monday.

TALLINN (Sputnik) — According to the information received by the ERR online media outlet, the jets will remain in the Baltic country for several weeks and in that time will carry out training flights with other US and allied forces’ aircraft.

The fifth-generation F-35 fighter jet is the most expensive weapons project in history, with an anticipated cost of more than $1 trillion over the next half-century.

The Baltic states do not have the aircraft fleet to conduct air policing missions. Therefore, NATO jets have been entrusted with the responsibility to ensure security in the region’s airspace since April 2004.
