File this one under: Slow news day for the tabloids. 

Our two favorite toilet paper alternatives—The Sun and Newsweek—both have shocking, action-packed stories about a brave British Typhoon fighter that "intercepted" two Russian bombers flying in international airspace over the Black Sea. 

Some less exciting details about this latest triumph over Russian aggression: The Typhoon tracked the Tupolev bombers (and their Su-27 escorts) at a very safe distance and “the jets did not come within visual range of each other.” Nevertheless, this heroic act undoubtedly discouraged Russia from bombing Romania. Certainly everyone agrees on that point?

Mission accomplished


To quote The Sun: What a frightening "air scare". 


That'll show the Russians.


Thank goodness we have Newsweek to keep us informed of British jets flying many kilometers away from Russian warplanes in international airspace. An invaluable resource for all your news needs.
