Dutch fighter jets scrambled Wednesday to intercept a pair of Russian military aircraft that entered their airspace, a fairly routine action that comes amid heightened tensions between Russia and NATO, a Dutch official said.

That's ok. This actually happens once or twice a year each and every time with the same outcome, it is Russia showing how big their Military e-peen is.

But elsewhere it is claimed that a couple of planes from RAF Leuchars went up to have a look, and the pilots from both sides happily posed for photographs.

you all wanted a weak America, and now we have a president who is a loser domestically and internationally. Hope you are all as excited as i am to reap the whirlwind. It's going to be great. i'm optimistic for peace and prosperity for all the nations. Let's all be friends again.

That is a refuelling line used for refuelling while in the air.

Ahh yes, thats how they mate, hence its nickname BBC due to the... appendage at the front. They're trying to cross-breed a Dutch fighter with a Russian fighter.. which in-turn will hopfully give result in a Russtutch (dont forget to roll the tongue at the 'Ru').

The Russtutch F22 's' model has a 16megapixel camera, is compatible with thirdparty accessories and can be recharged, unlike the current models that are one fly/time use only.

Somehow, seeing that bomber from the 50s (60s?) makes me think of playing Civilization, when those countries with outdated military hardware attempt to attack your state of the art, high tech units. A mere nuisance.

Did you notice the tail gunner on the back of the Tu-95 Bear H? Not seen anything like that since the Lancashire Bomber and the Flying Fortress. Which were built in WW2.
