Russian fighter jet intercepts U.S. Navy plane over Black Sea

Russian fighter jet intercepts U.S. Navy plane over Black Sea

November 5 in global airspace over the Black sea a Russian fighter jet su-27 was unsafe maneuvering near the us spy plane EP-3 Aries.

The Russian jet then activated its afterburners creating more turbulence, making a second pass by the United States plane. Washington stated that the SU-27 made a flight in which it broke the sound barrier near the ER-3 and, in its opinion, put at risk the lives of the pilots of the USA aircraft.

It's unclear how close the aircraft came to hitting each other or whether the Russian fighter was armed.

And in June a year ago, an Su-27 closed in on the wing of a U.S. RC-135U reconnaissance aircraft over the Baltic Sea at high speed, U.S. European Command said at the time. Near the city of Sevastopol, seat of the Russian fleet of the Black Sea, the aircraft approached 35 kilometers to the coast.

The US Navy released video of the incident which clearly shows the Su-27 sharply turning in front of the plane with its engines blaring.

The Dutchman impressed against United on Saturday despite Bournemouth losing 2-1 to thanks Marcus Rashford's injury-time victor . With 20 points from 10 games, they might even expect to be in the Champions League places at this point in the season.

There was no communication between the two planes and the encounter lasted about 25 minutes, Spokesperson Eric Pahon told reporters at the Pentagon. The intercepting SU-27 made an additional pass, closing with the EP-3 and applying its afterburner while conducting a banking turn away.

Whether the US military labels an air encounter is unsafe or unprofessional has less to do with the distances between aircraft and more with the behavior of the pilots intercepting the aircraft.

"The fighter crew reported identification of the U.S. signals reconnaissance aircraft and escorted it away from the airspace of the Russian Federation in compliance with all security and safety requirements", the statement says.

While the Russian military is within its right to exercise within global airspace, this interaction was irresponsible. Because of this, after the first flight of a fighter plane-the scout felt the turbulence, and after the second felt the vibration.

At least 17 foreign planes and UAVs flew spy missions near Russia's borders in just a week, the Defense Ministry said on November 1.
