Of course, Louis is being rightly sarcastic here, because 99% of the 
time, the Russians are not bombing ISIS, just bombing FSA, anti-ISIS 
Islamists, hospitals, apartment blocks, marketplaces etc. So since the 
RAF is only bombing ISIS, there is even less reason for them to come 
into conflict, since they would be rarely even near each other.

Contact between US and Russian warplanes would be more likely, since 
both the US and Russia bomb ex-Nusra and other Islamists. But that is 
why they share intelligence, to avoid mistakes.

If they are bombing ISIS, why should they have a conflict with Russian
jets that are doing the same thing?
