  • Russian fighter intercept of US recon plane deemed'unsafe

This caused "a 15-degree roll and violent turbulence" and the "interaction was determined to be unsafe", the military said.

Approaching at high speed, the Russian jet, equipped with air-to-air missiles, came within five feet of the United States aircraft during the 24 minute incident.

Lt. Col. Michelle Baldanza told the outlet that a Russian Su-30 intercepted a U.S. P-8A Poseidon aircraft over the Black Sea by crossing in front of it from right to left while engaging its afterburners.

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

The last reported interaction between us and Russian aircraft took place in June when a Russian Sukhoi Su-27 flew within five feet of an American RC-135 reconnaissance plane.

This isn't the first hairy encounter between US and Russian aircrafts.

"The P-8 was forced to fly through the jet wash of the SU-30", Baldanza said. This also happened in global airspace.

The Russian fighter jet buzzed the US Navy reconnaissance plane at around 1pm local time (10:00 GMT) as it was flying over the neutral waters of the Black Sea, the ministry said.

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