The Irish authorities had to change the schedule of civilian flights due to regular maneuvers of two Russian Tu-95 bombers near the borders of the country's airspace, Joinfo.ua reports.
"The flight from Dublin was delayed, another plane had to change its course to avoid a possible rapprochement with the Russian bombers," reads the report of the Irish Aviation Authority.
In a traditional manner for the Russian military aircraft they were flying with switched-off transponders, the devices that allow the air traffic control to recognize an aircraft.
In late January and in February, there was a similar incident. RAF fighters took off to intercept Russian bombers. British aircraft had to escort Russian planes until flew far from British airspace.
