A new Typhoon squadron arrived at RAF Lossiemouth yesterday as preparations continued for the expansion of the base.
Moray-based aircrews are called to the cockpits of their Typhoon fighter jets in “heightened readiness” every few days, it has emerged.
Fighter jets bombed three targets in Iraq last week as RAF forces stepped up the fight against the so-called Islamic State.
An RAF Typhoon fighter jet flew 200ft underneath a helicopter on its way to a North Sea platform a report by the UK Airprox Board has revealed.
A typhoon "unwittingly" flew just 300ft above a Hawk jet in the second near-miss incident to emerge from RAF Lossiemouth in as many days.
