US F-16 and RAF Eurofighter Typhoon intercept Russiαn jet over Baltic & Black sea

US Air Force and Royal Air Force planes roar over Britain as the wαr in Ukrαine escalates.

Royal Air Force Eurofighter Typhoons and US Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcons are seen crossing the country on various missions and exercises.

“Royal Air Force Typhoon forces continue to be in high readiness to deploy worldwide to support operations – an example is the recent deployment of additional aircraft to Cyprus to patrol NATO/Romania airspace following Russiαn aggression in Ukrαine.”

The NATO-led operation was initiated in connection with ongoing events in eastern Europe. The Royal Air Force Eurofighter Typhoon was seen flying over Grimsby on Wednesday, when an F-16 was seen flying over the Donna Nook sea in Lincolnshire.

The Royal Air Force confirmed that the activity carried out by this aircraft was part of a pre-planned Enhanced Vigilance Activity, a NATO-led operation initiated in connection with ongoing events in eastern Europe.

Royal Air Force Typhoons and US Air Force F-16 regularly train across the UK and frequently/daily make use of the training areas over the North Sea and also continue to use Air weαpσns Ranges such as the Royal Air Force Donna Nook.

“The Royal Air Force and for that matter, Royal Air Force Typhoon and US F-16 pilots use various training areas across the UK for training and vary their training routes and locations to maximize the benefits of training; recently our planes have been training all over the UK world.”

“The use of such training areas allows Royal and US Air Force pilots to train in a variety of environments in preparation for operations around the world, as is the case in the Middle East and Eastern Europe.

This loud jet was heard flying over Swansea on Tuesday. According to the flight tracking website, it appears that at least one of the US air force planes departed from Royal Air Force Lakenheath in Suffolk, England, before heading southwest for Swansea.

“The use of such training areas allows Royal Air Force pilots to train in a variety of environments in preparation for operations around the world, as is the case in the Middle East and Eastern Europe.

The Allies have taken turns guarding the skies over Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania since they joined NATO.

Since Russiα’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, NATO has further strengthened air patrols in the eastern part of the Alliance, with additional aircraft.

Under the NATO air policing mission, fighter jets fly into the air when aircraft near Allied airspace do not follow good flight procedures, including drawing up flight plans and communicating with air traffic control.

NATO rapid reaction aircraft were ready to take off within minutes to intercept any aircraft that could threaten Allied airspace.
