Dramatic moment Russian fighter jet dangerously intercepts US Navy plane – putting pilots and crew at risk
A US reconnaissance plane has been intercepted by a Russian jet fighter over the Black Sea, despite it being in a legal fly zone.
The US Navy said on Twitter that two close flybys put the aircraft and crew at risk.
The fighter jet pulls up over the aircraft’s right wing
The incident occurred today, with the Navy posting about the event around 5pm UK time.
Footage shows a Russian SU-27 jet fighter putting extremely close to the aircraft’s right hand side, and then burning its afterburners and peeling off.
The Navy tweet read: “#USNavy aircraft was operating in accordance with international law and did not provoke this Russian activity.”
The jet fighter’s engines appear to be burning strongly
The US Navy said on their website that the interception had lasted roughly 25 minutes.
A report of the incident read: “This interaction was determined to be unsafe due to the SU-27 conducting a high speed pass directly in front of the mission aircraft, putting at risk the pilots and crew.
“The intercepting SU-27 made an additional pass, closing with the EP-3 and applying its afterburner while conducting a banking turn away.
“The crew of the EP-3 reported turbulence following the first interaction, and vibrations from the second.”
The website post went on to say the Russian military was within its right to exercise within international airspace, but that the interaction was irresponsible.
