Baltic Air Policing - Polish Smokers + BONUS

Hi Guys,
Back in August I visited Lithuanian Air Base in Siauliai where Polish Orlik IV detachment was based. My main target was air-to-air session with our Fulcrums (which went more than good) but thanks to magnificent pilots I was able to get some shots from the ground as well. Here are some of them:
