There’s no eruption, nor any other type of emergency, nor have the Russian-Chinese joint military exercises spilled over into Spain … the jet fighters and gunship helicopters that several have spotted in our skies here are simply for the purposes of Bencomo 18, military manoeuvres carried out by the land and air armed services throughout the Canaries. In Tenerife today alone they have been spotted over Los Rodeos where they are based and as far afield as Callao Salvaje. The Bencomo 18 exercises will be going on throughout September.
