RAF intercepts Russian aircraft
 RAF Tornado jets have intercepted eight Russian military aircraft approaching British airspace.

The interception was the latest in a series of incidents in which British fighters have been used to warn off long-range Russian reconnaissance aircraft.

The four Tornado F3 fighters were launched from RAF Leeming in North Yorkshire and RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire in the early hours of Thursday morning, a Ministry of Defence spokesman said.

They intercepted and turned back eight Russian Tupolev Tu-95 "Bear" aircraft, which were "approaching but not in British airspace", he said.

Last month, two of the RAF's Typhoon jets shadowed a Russian aircraft above the North Atlantic Ocean.

It was one of the first tasks performed by the recently-commissioned jets and it made the Bear-H aircraft turn back before it entered UK airspace.

Yes but there is a difference between an Photo or an Air show display and flying against one.
