A RAF Boeing RC-135W (reg. ZZ665) is carrying out (14:00 CET) this afternoon a surveillance misison over the Black Sea.
After what happened on 29 September (an RAF RC-135 was intercepted by Russian fighters who fired a missile by mistake) two RAF Eurofigther FGR.4s (reg. ZK363/ZK351– callsign PSYCHO61/62) are escorting the aircraft over the Black Sea.
While the RC-135W took off from RAF Waddington, the two Typhoons departed from RAF Akrotiri, Cyprus, and carried out an in-flight refuelling over Romania with the help of an RAF tanker, an Airbus KC.2 (reg. ZZ343), which also took off from Cyprus.
Meanwhile a NATO Boeing E-3A (reg. LX-N90443 – callsign MAGIC11) is moniotring the area orbiting over eastern Romania.
