Two F-16 fighters deployed with the Danish Contingent on the NATO Air-policing mission flew over Minaiciai village in Radviliskis District on February 15 giving a spectacle for the crowd gathered to mark the 60th anniversary of Liberation of Lithuania Movement. On 16 February 1949 Declaration of Liberation Movement of Lithuania was signed in a convention of Lithuanian partisan leaders in the location. Signature of the Declaration was the legal and political basis of the armed resistance of Lithuania.
