The pilot is yet to be found.

A US Air Force F-15C Eagle is seen at the airfield near Siauliai Zuokiniai, Lithunaia on March 6, in 2014. The United States sent six additional F-15 fighter jets to step up NATO's air patrols over the Baltic states, mission host Lithuania said as West-Russia tensions simmered over Ukraine.
