Canadian fighter-jet makes emergency landing in north Lithuania

F-18 Hornet fighter jet of the Royal Canadian Air Force

The jet was forced to land due to malfunction of the jet’s control system, the Ministry of National Defence said.

The F-18 Hornet, which was participating in a flight training, landed successfully and did not need to activate the emergency landing system. As a standard procedure, rescue services were notified of the incident.

Currently, the NATO air-policing mission in the Baltic states is performed by Portugal’s Air Force aviators with six F-16 Fighting Falcons and Canada’s Royal Air Force airmen with four F-18 Hornets.
