    A Russian Bear aircraft is escorted by a Royal Air Force Quick Reaction Alert (QRA) Typhoon during an intercept in September 2014. Royal Air Force aircraft at RAF Lossiemouth launched the Quick Reaction Alert (QRA) for the first time since the Moray base took on the role of defending the UK's Northern airspace. Typhoon jets were scrambled to identify aircraft in international airspace. The aircraft, identified as Russian military 'Bears', did not enter UK airspace.

    Two UK Royal Air Force jets intercepted a pair of Russian bombers flying over the English Channel near British airspace, British defense ministry says.
