Johnson’s Union flag jet called to North Sea

Boris Johnson’s Union flag-decorated tanker jet has been deployed on a mission in the North Sea.

It comes after two Typhoon fighter aircraft were launched from RAF Leuchars in Fife earlier on Monday morning on a Quick Reaction Alert (QRA).

The RAF Voyager ZZ336 aircraft – which had a paint job worth around £1 million earlier this year – was then deployed shortly after 11.15am in support from the Brize Norton base.

The Voyager appeared to travel towards Shetland before looping back down south.
