Russian nuke jet buzzes Hull


www.thesun.co.uk

A RUSSIAN nuclear bomber came within 90 SECONDS of the British coastline after RAF top guns failed to intercept it.

The supersonic “Blackjack” jet flew a direct course for the port of Hull, East Yorks, in a lighting-fast mock attack.

Creeping in low over the North Sea, it changed course just 20 miles from UK territorial airspace.

It was belatedly picked up on radar, but the only two pairs of fighter jets on permanent standby for air alerts were on other duties.

The shock incident — which air chiefs hushed up — is the most serious since the end of the Cold War. And it exposes alarming flaws in Britain’s air defence, seriously calling into question the Government’s defence cuts four years ago, when four fast jet squadrons of Jaguar and Tornado F3 fighters were slashed from the RAF’s books.

Well bare in mind this is the sun so this could easily be disinformation to make people fear russia but nevertheless it is quite disturbing to see how close the jet could get into British airspace without being stopped.

Russia has become unstable, unpredictable and nothing but a risk...

I don't like the way that they've been showing off lately...Besides the fact that they are basically trying to stir things up- tensions are only goiing to get higher from this.

Russia needs sanctions. Flatout.
