Two Russian bomber jets approached British air space

As the sources of the British air forces reported on Wednesday, two Russian aircrafts were recorded by the radars to take the direction of the Hybrid Islands during the exercise Neptune Warrior of the Royal Navy April 22-May 3. Two British destroyer jets Tornado F-3 were sent to intercept the Russian aircrafts as soon as the strategic bombers TU-95 approached the air space of the country. No radio contact took place between the pilots of the Russian and British aircrafts; the incident didnt last longer than 15-20 minutes, a spokesman for the Royal Air Force reported.
      Paul Jackson, the editor of the British aviation bulletin Janes All the World`s Aircraft, says there is nothing extraordinary in the recent flight of Russian bomber jets. According to the expert, the exercise was carried out in the international waters, and Russians had the equal right to be there as British did.
