You mean the RAF still have some aircraft to fly? I thought they'd be cardboard cut outs after the Defence cuts! :)

**** me! RAF Typhoons have actually been used for something!

Sorry to disappoint you mate, i have it on good authority that it was a couple of eyties on the way home from having a cappuchino in the mess at Coningsby, bloody annoyed they were too, they missed tea at Brindisi.!!

Two Typhoons were scrambled last week after a plane fell off the radar and air traffic couldn't contact it, coming into land somewhere in England.

But by the time they got into the air it had already landed, be better off with a/c model spitfires at least they'd get somewhere.

Ahem...it was a Yankee JEEP..not a British Rangie...hence the reason if faltered whilst trying to negotiate the curb ;)
One has to ask - why are a couple of Jihadists tooling around in a vehicle of the Great Satan - surely there must be some sort of guideline on this sort of thing that can be obtained from one's local Imam?

From the beeb article: "Russia's chief investigator said terrorists were behind the attack."


No shit Sherlock, well spotted. You mean it wasn't a Militant Avon rep?

Wonder if the 'British National' will be made to pay the costs of scrambling two jets? about 18 months ago a guy in a Cessna here in CZ flipped his transponder onto 7500 (hijack alert) by mistake..... two Saab Grippens were scrambled and escorted him into the airfield a couple of KM's away from where I live.. he was charged 17,000 euros for it (and had to sell his Cessna to pay...the silly fool!)
