What Are NATO’s ‘Eyes In The Sky’? On Board The AWACS Aircraft | Forces TV!

Forces TV has been given rare access to a mission aboard one of NATO’s “eyes in the sky”. A fleet of Airborne Warning and Control Surveillance aircraft or AWACS is based at Geilenkirchen in Germany. Since Moscow’s annexation of Crimea in 2014, AWACS patrols have supported NATO assurance measures to keep airspace safe over countries near Russia like the Baltic States and Poland.
