Two RAF fighter jets intercepted two Russian bomber aircraft off the British coast on Wednesday. Several hours after this incident, Zevda, a government-owned Russian television channel, released video (http://tvzvezda.ru/news/vstrane_i_mire/content/201502190952-euht.htm
) they said shows NATO fighter aircraft escorting Russian military aircraft. Zevda did not explicitly state when the footage was filmed. However, based on the lighting conditions and the squadron insignia seen on the RAF jets, Storyful has ascertained that at least part of this footage shows an interception on January 28 (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-31049952
) rather than Wednesday's incident.
On Wednesday, the fighter jets were deployed from RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire. However, the squadron badge on one of the British fighter jets seen at 0.27 in the video is that of the 1 Squadron (http://www.raf.mod.uk/organisation/1squadron.cfm
) which is based in RAF Lossiemouth, not Coningsby. Based on this, we are able to conclude that at least part of this footage is of the January interception when jets from RAF Lossiemouth were scrambled to intercept two Russian Tu-95 aircraft (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-31049952
