For the first time, two of the world’s most advanced warplanes have landed in Romania. The warplanes touched ground near the shores of the Black Sea and just a short hop from Ukraine, Russia and Crimean Peninsula.

Precisely, the planes landed at Mihail Kogalniceanu Airport near the Romanian city of Constanta. The transfer from RAF Lakenheath in Eastern England is strategically significant for NATO and its allies.

This is because Constanta is on the Black Sea, close to the Ukrainian border, Crimea and Sevastopol, the home of Russia’s Black Sea fleet.

Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 and has continued military exercises in the area while saying it will spend $2.4 billion to upgrade its naval capacity.

The incident was officially for a NATO training exercise. Meanwhile, the training was part of the Rapid Response program revealing the effectiveness and speed of moving U.S. fighter jets, crews and support to a forward operating base.

Notable features of the F-22s are speed and stealth. And these aid travelling twice the speed of sound as well as ability to be barely spot on radar.

However, it was seemingly an avenue for NATO associates to showcase strength on the Black sea, where Russia is swiftly developing its military hardware.
