THIS is the moment RAF Typhoons intercept Russian fighter jets flying close to Nato airspace in tense standoff.
The RAF Typhoons scrambled from Amari Air Base in Estonia to visually identify multiple Russian aircraft flying over the Baltic Sea.
The Russian aircraft remained in international airspace and flew in a “safe and provisional manner” according to the Royal Air Force.
The Typhoon fighters, that are currently deployed on NATO’s Baltic Air Policing Mission, intercepted one An-72 COALER and two Su-27 FLANKER Bs.
The Typhoons returned to Amari Airbase to continue NATO’s Air Policing Mission.
