Britain scrambles two Typhoon jets to intercept Russian planes

LONDON (Reuters) – Britain scrambled two Royal Air Force Typhoon jets on Monday from Scotland to intercept Russian planes near the United Kingdom’s airspace, a defense ministry spokesman said.

The Typhoons were scrambled from RAF Lossiemouth in Moray, Scotland.

“This is a live operation and therefore we will not be providing any additional information until the mission is complete,” the spokesman said.
