NATO was forced to scramble fighter jets to intercept two Russian Tu-160 Blackjack bombers as they flew past Norway, along the west coast of the U.K., then toward northern Spain and back again.

Norway, the U.K., France, and Spain mobilized their jets as the planes got near the airspace of each country, according to the French defense ministry in a recent statement. The bombers flew from the Arctic to the Bay of Biscay in an incident that took place on Sept. 22.

I posted a different link to this earlier in another thread. Apparently, they were tucked in next to airliners. I was led to believe they made it quite a way before being discovered and the, "four country scramble" didn't happen until they were being escorted back north. Maybe I should click the link above now(?).
