Spanish Air Force shows Eurofighter training over the Alboran Sea

In what could be described as direct action following recent events, Spain shows it has what it takes to defend the skies over the country.

SPANISH AIR FORCE have been forced to show its aerial capabilities, and give a little warning shot, after a Moroccan military aircraft was allegedly seen entering a Spanish airspace recently.

A video of the Eurofighter, part of the Spanish Air Force, was captured training in the Alboran Sea.

In the video, a Spanish Eurofighter is seen flying before firing two flares. In the background you can see the coast, and what is supposed to be Spanish territory.

“Our Ala11 fighter pilots, aboard the Eurofighter Typhoon fighter plane, train their defensive capabilities in air combat over the Alboran Sea,” according to the social media post last Friday, August 28.

Similar events like this occurred last December when Parliament in Morocco began to process a law which would have seen the expansion to the territorial waters on its western coast.

In a move that conflicts with Spanish sovereignty waters to the east of the Canary Islands, the Spanish Air Force released another “warning” video on social media of two F-18s from Wing 46, based in Gando, flying over the coast of the island of Gran Canaria.
