Preserved inside the Lithuanian Air Force base at Siauliai. During the Cold War this airfield was under intense scrutiny, being a westerly Soviet fighter base. RAF crews frequently scrambled to intercept missions from here. The world has changed since then and now NATO forces (recently a squadron of RAF Tornados) are stationed at Siauliai, providing defence for the Baltic states themselves. All that remains of the past is this Soviet Sukhoi, with Red Star markings sympathetically painted out.
