Russian bombers disrupted planes in Irish airspace

One plane was diverted and another delayed to avoid two Russian bombers that flew through Irish-controlled airspace, a navigational radar seen here, without warning in February, the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) said on TuesdayOne plane was diverted and another delayed to avoid two Russian bombers that flew through Irish-controlled airspace without warning in February, the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) said on Tuesday. The disruption is believed to have occurred during the same February 18 incident in which British RAF Typhoon fighters were scrambled to escort two Russian bear bombers identified flying close to British airspace. The move was seen as a show of strength by Russia amid tensions over the conflict in Ukraine, where Prime Minister David Cameron has accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of challenging the territorial integrity of Kiev. The Irish authority said that the two Russian aircraft were flying with their transponders switched off — devices that help aircraft to be identified by air traffic control radars.
