R.A.F Typhoons North Fife

A pair of R.A.F. Typhoons passing overhead returning to base at Royal Air Force Leuchars. The Station is primarily responsible for maintaining Quick Reaction Alert (Interceptor) North, providing crews and aircraft at high states of readiness 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to police UK airspace and to intercept unidentified aircraft. This pair almost touching were the first back after a jolly in the highlands this morning, others drifted back one at a time. Noisily in misty snow shower conditions.
