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. ZK362/ZK426– callsign DREAD011/012) escorted the aircraft over the Black Sea.
The two Typhoons departed from RAF Akrotiri, Cyprus, are oprating with the support of a RAF tanker, an Airbus KC.2 (reg. ZZ338), which also took off from Cyprus.
The air surveillance is provided by an Italian Air Force Gulfstream E.550 CAEW (reg. MM62303) orbiting over eastern Romania.
We tracked such a mission just 2 days ago, we had never recorded this kind of mission so close together.
