RAF intercepts pair of Russian jets over Lewis
It was a mid-air game of cat and mouse that would have been commonplace 40 years ago during the height of the Cold War between the West and the Soviet Union.

While the world may not be heading back to the brink of nuclear armageddon, the RAF revealed yesterday its jets were involved in a close encounter with two Russian Blackjack bombers over the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides 15 days ago.
