RAF Typhoon jets scrambled above Scotland after squawking ‘quick reaction alert’

Daily Express says the aircraft took off from RAF Lossiemouth using the 1307 squawk code, meaning NATO air policing. Aircraft and satellite tracker SkyScanWorld said it is possibly a practice operation involving a Dassault Falcon with tanker support from an RAF Airbus Voyager.

The jets were seen crossing northern Scotland towards the Outer Hebrides on Tuesday.

SkyScanWorld tweeted that it is possibly linked to a German Air Force Eurofighter which took off from Laage Air Base and was spotted near Poland’s Baltic Sea coast.
