That just ended was a busy week for Task Force Air Black Storm which has been activated seven times in the last four days.
On all occasions, the NATO chain of command and control has requested the intervention of Italian aircraft following a potential entry of unauthorized air traffic within the area of competence.
Failure to comply with international air traffic navigation procedures has in fact given way to the immediate take-off order, scramble in technical jargon, for the Eurofigter 2000 couple of the QRA (Quick Reaction Allert) cell in readiness at the airport Romanian by Mihail Kogalniceanu from early December.
The TFA Black Storm aircraft, in constant contact with the CRC (Reporting and Control Center), monitored air traffic within the Romanian FIR (Flight Information Region) before returning to the base.
The TFA Black Storm was deployed at the Romanian airport to integrate the Romanian defense facility as part of the Enhanced Air Policing activities promoted by NATO.
