US Navy plane has 'unsafe' encounter with Russian jet

US Navy plane has 'unsafe' encounter with Russian jet

The incident reportedly lasted 24 minutes.

Russia's military responded Tuesday by saying its jet had been dispatched because the USA plane was approaching its borders "at high speed", according to the state-run TASS news agency.

Powerful Russian Su-27 jet fighter contained air-to-air missiles hidden under its wings and chassed the US Air Force RC-135 reconnaissance jet coming rapidly within five feet of the US aircraft, officials reported.

A US Navy P-8A Poseidon anti-submarine warfare aircraft was intercepted by a Russian Air Force Su-30 Flanker fighter jet on November 25. This also happened in worldwide airspace.




A Russian Su-30 Fighter Jet buzzed a reconnaissance USA navy aircraft, which was flying over the Black Sea, during the conduction of routine petrol at worldwide airspace on Saturday.

However the Russian jet crossed in front of the U.S. plane from right to left, the Pentagon told CNN, engaging its afterburners, thereby prompting the U.S. Poseidon to spanner into "a 15-degree roll and violent turbulence". The U.S. Navy deemed the interaction safe.

As a result of the "provocative" manoeuvre, the U.S. aircraft did "a 15-degree roll" that could have caused "serious harm and injury to all air crews involved", a USA official said.

The spokeswoman for the Pentagon said the USA aircraft "did nothing to provoke this Russian behavior".
