A Russian fighter jet has flown within 10 feet of a U.S. Navy plane over the Black Sea.
The jet made what Pentagon officials called an ‘unsafe intercept’ of an American surveillance aircraft.
Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, says the Russian SU-27 Flanker fighter made the maneuver on Wednesday.
It was near a U.S. Navy P-8A Poseidon aircraft that was conducting routine operations in international airspace.
‘U.S. Navy aircraft and ships routinely interact with Russian units in the area and most interactions are safe and professional,’ Davis said, according to ABC News.
