In June 2022, three Russian aircraft flew over the British Navy aircraft carrier Queen Elizabeth. To the standard mutual procedure of the Navy and the Air Force of potential opponents, the tabloid journalists added a fair amount of drama. According to the Daily Mail, the Russian Su-24 bombers showed undisguised hostility and threatened the 1500 people aboard the aircraft carrier.

As stated in the publication, the British aircraft carrier had to deal with the Russian military more than once during a mission in the Mediterranean. In addition to bombers, the frigate of the Russian Navy Admiral Makarov blocked the road to the flagship of the Royal Navy.
This is one of several encounters with Putin's forces that the aircraft carrier Queen Elizabeth had to face on a long voyage.
