As 2014 drew to a close on 31 December, so did the 36th rotation of the
NATO Baltic Air Policing (BAP) mission. In a ceremony held at Šiauliai
Air Base, Lithuania, attended by civilian and military representatives
from Host Nations and Contributing Nations, the Portuguese Air Force
handed over the key to the Baltic airspace to the Italian Air Force.
Italy is the lead nation of the incoming 37th rotation.
