It appears the Russians want to play tough guy again and are menacing US aircraft in international airspace.
A Russian Su-30 fighter jet buzzed a Navy reconnaissance plane flying in the Black Sea while conducting a routine patrol in international airspace Saturday, an official told Fox News.
The Russian jet crossed 50 feet in front of the Navy P-8 in full afterburner causing “violent turbulence,” the official said. The provocation lasted 24 minutes. – Fox News
This latest incident comes within a couple weeks of Russia claiming the US was acting as an occupying force in Syria.
