RAF Typhoon spotted above south coast with small plane after Bournemouth Air Festival
AN RAF Typhoon was spotted above the south coast on Monday apparently intercepting a small plane.
But it turned out the aircraft seen above Eastbourne at around 4pm was only completing a photoshoot for the RAF after an appearance at Bournemouth Air Festival.
The imagery will be released on the RAF’s social media channels soon.
A spokesman for the RAF said: ‘The Typhoon display aircraft was completing a photoshoot on the south coast after displaying at the Bournemouth Air Festival.’
He added: ‘(The RAF was) capturing imagery of specially painted display aircraft with the tail art.’
