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.

best nip out and stock up on bottled water and batteries[;)]

Its just a bit of tit for tat by the russians,due to us expelling some of thier Diplomats for not handing over the Russian blokes who were implicated in the murder of the other Russian bloke in Central London with that Radioactive Poison stuff.

I think [:D]

You've slept with Russian male bummer bomber crews?

I hope you didn't give any national secrets away[;)]
