RAF Lossiemouth Typhoon forced to land in Aberdeen after “technical issue”

An RAF Typhoon has been forced to land at Aberdeen Airport after a “technical issue”.

The RAF said the aircraft, from RAF Lossiemouth, had been on a routine training sortie.

The technical issue led to what was described as a “precautionary landing” at the nearest suitable airfield, which was Aberdeen. The Typhoon is expected to be assessed by engineers.

The RAF said: “The aircraft landed safely and the pilot is fine.”
