The Royal Air Force (RAF) last night used warplanes to intercept a Russian military plane that was flying near NATO airspace.

In the latest air confrontation last night, a Russian Navy Tupolev Tu-134 and two Sukhoi Su-27 flank planes glided too close to NATO airspace.

The British Air Force shared photos on Twitter last night of two RAF Typhoon jets in Estonia flying through the sky to meet the Russian planes.

The Russian planes “failed to comply with international norms by not cooperating with regional air traffic control,” the RAF added.

In one photo, a Typhoon jet can be seen close behind the larger Tu-134 with “Baltic Fleet” written on the side.

The Typhoons were assembled from the 140 Expeditionary Air Wing in Estonia, the RAF said.
