Latvian carrier Air Baltic has flown a specially-painted Airbus A220-300 in formation with fighters to commemorate the centenary of the Baltic country’s establishment.

The aircraft (YL-CSL) – which was delivered in the second week of October – carries a livery reflecting the red-and-white national flag, as well as the title ‘Latvia 100’ on the fin.

It flew in formation with two Lockheed Martin F-16s and a Eurofighter Typhoon, parading above the Daugava river and over the cable-stayed Vansu bridge.

Air Baltic says the aircraft departed Riga airport for the event on 18 November. It held at around 1,000ft over the Gulf of Riga before descending to pass over the bridge from the north.
