Flight Lieutenant Jase Orr, the Voyager captain, explained how it does not always go to plan:
"One of the four Typhoons today was so short on fuel that he wasn't able to take any.
"He had to go home rather than wait around to get his turn.
"The weather forecast this morning was fine - as we came up to Scotland a lot of clouds around and very bumpy as well, so we had to work quite hard to find some suitable airspace for the fast jets to find us, and to be able to make contact with the hoses."
This squadron of Typhoons will be heading to Estonia before going to Iceland for the first time later in the year.
