LONDON – Following the intercept of four Russian Bear aircraft yesterday, RAF Typhoon fighters have been scrambled for a second day in a row.
They departed once again from RAF Lossiemouth, with the RAF Voyager air refueling aircraft joining them to offer support.
According to reports from Sky News & Reuters, Russian “strategic bombers” were in the air above neutral waters in the North-East Atlantic.
An RAF spokesperson commented on this deployment once again:
“Quick Reaction Alert Typhoon fighters from RAF Lossiemouth, supported by a Voyager Tanker from RAF Brize Norton, have been launched against aircraft approaching the UK area of interest.”
“We will not be offering any additional detail on this ongoing operation until complete.”
This is a developing story.
