A U.S. Air Force F-15C Eagle aircraft assigned to the 493rd Expeditionary Fighter Squadron responds to an alert scramble notification at Siauliai Air Base, Lithuania, Sept. 4, 2017. The Eagle is a combat proven, tactical fighter that can penetrate rival defenses and outperform and outfight any current opposing aircraft, giving NATO the strategic access critical to meet Article 5 commitments and to respond to threats against its allies and partners.
