Britain says fighter jets scrambled to intercept Russian bombers

LONDON Thu Jan 29, 2015 12:50pm EST


(Reuters) - British Typhoon fighter jets were scrambled to intercept two Russian Bear long-range bombers which had flown close to UK airspace, Britain's Ministry of Defence (MoD) said on Thursday.

The Russian planes were detected flying over the Channel, south of England, on Wednesday and typhoons were launched from Royal Air Force (RAF) bases at Lossiemouth in Scotland and Coningsby in eastern England, the MoD said.

"The Russian planes were escorted by the RAF until they were out of the UK area of interest. At no time did the Russian military aircraft cross into UK sovereign airspace," the Ministry of Defence said in a statement.

Last year, NATO conducted more than 100 intercepts of Russian aircraft, about three times as many as in 2013, amid sharply increased tensions between the West and Moscow over the Ukraine crisis.

They (the Typhoons) flew over Bournemouth as the went to intercept these Russian bombers and escort away them from the edges of UK airspace....This is Russia putting two fingers up at our stance on the Crimea annexation and its incursion into Ukraine....Plus the murder inquiry starting in a few weeks of ex-KGB spy Alexander Litvinenko.

More fear mongering. Why don't we go ahead and have a war? All this crap does is make people talk about how close we are to it. Then the years pass by and nothing.
