Czech fighter jets should patrol the skies above Iceland again in October, a spokesperson for the army’s general staff told the Czech News Agency. As in a previous mission last year, 75 soldiers and five Gripen planes are to be sent to Iceland. It will be the fourth time that Czech-owned Gripens have been deployed to guard NATO airspace in other states. Iceland is a NATO member but does not have an army of its own.
