According to the Ministry of Defence, the Typhoons were scrambled from their temporary home at Leuchars Station in Fife, Scotland. 

The Nato air defence radars identified the two Russian Tu-160 Blackjacks, and it was decided to send the Royal Norwegian Air Force’s (RNAF) Quick Reaction Alert fighters. 

The Luftforsvaret F-16s from Bodø Airbase were dispersed and identified the Russian aircraft and shadowed them.
