RAF Typhoons (Eurofighters) were deployed from a base in Lossiemouth, as two Russian Tu-142 "Bear-F" aircraft approached from the north-east of Scotland on Wednesday April 27th. The Russians stayed fractionally inside international airspace over the Norwegian Sea and the North Sea, but were flying in the UK's ‘area of interest’. Norwegian F-16s and F-35 jets, and a Nato E-3A were also deployed. "Today's scramble demonstrated the close working relationships we have with our Nato colleagues," said an RAF pilot, who was not identified.

The inflight-refuelling aircraft (Airbus Voyager KC3)  were refuelling the fighters while 'on station', before heading back, passing directly over Dunbar.
