A RAF Boeing RC-135W (reg. ZZ664), departed from RAf Waddington, carried out this afternoon a surveillance mission over the Black Sea.
After what happened on September (an RAF RC-135 was intercepted by Russian fighters who fired a missile by mistake) two RAF Eurofigther FGR.4s (reg. ZK327/ZK351– callsign DREAD011/012) escorted the aircraft over the Black Sea.
The two Typhoons departed from RAF Akrotiri, Cyprus, have carried out an in-flight refuelling over Romania with the help of an RAF tanker, an Airbus KC.2 (reg. ZZ337), which also took off from Cyprus and which is orbiting (15:00 CET) over eastern Romania waiting for a new refueling.
