Captivating photo of a F-22 Raptor pilot climbing into the cockpit of this amazing 5th generation fighter aircraft getting ready to take off from Ämari Air Base, Estonia.
Now a NATO member, Estonia was once part of the infamous Warsaw Pact from 1955–1991 during the height of the Soviet Union’s power. The air base used to host the Russian Su-24 fighter jets. The new F-35 has also visited the Ämari air base.
