So, more indirect consequences of the Russian-Ukraine situation.... But this weekend, the US Air Force is deploying a detachment of F-15C Eagles to Keflavik International Airport in Iceland. The US F-15's are reliving a squadron of Royal Norwegian F-16 Falcons because the Norwegian budget has been expended. The overall mission remains a NATO sponsored training one that has a "real world contingency...." (ie they can go bomb things if needed) Along with Norway and the US, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, and Portugal have contributed different capabilities to the mission. The UK's RAF was going to participate in the past, but some sort of official banking dispute arose between Iceland and the UK and the UK cancelled their participation. I didn't even know that the UK and Iceland had a spat between them.
