"The Russian planes caused disruption to civil aviation. That is why we summoned the Russian Ambassador today to account for the incident," the Foreign Office said in a statement.

The Foreign Office said the incident was part of an increasing pattern of "out of area operations" by Russian aircraft.

A British government source said the Russian move was viewed as "a significant escalation" and was a change in strategy since Russian aircraft had previously largely confined themselves to flying close to Scotland.

"It was very dangerous. Civil aircraft flying to the UK had to be rerouted," the source said. "The Russians were flying with their transponders turned off so could only be seen on military radar. They haven't flown this far south before."

Just the one jet? I'm sure we have two of them...
INTJ women - 0.8% of the population

Rules, limitations and traditions are anathema to the INTJ personality type - everything should be open to questioning and reevaluation, and if they see a way, INTJs will often act unilaterally to enact their technically superior, sometimes insensitive, and almost always unorthodox methods and ideas.
