An American B-52 bomber was harassed in flight by Russian Suhoi Su-27 aircraft over the Black Sea.
The Pentagon released a video of a Boeing B-52 Stratofortress, which was harassed in flight by Russian Suhoi Su-27 aircraft. The American bomber Boeing B-52 Stratofortress performed a patrol flight over the Black Sea, a flight that was part of a show of strength and solidarity for the NATO alliance.
Flights over Eastern Europe and the tense region of the Black Sea, where the interception took place, were also included.
The Pentagon says that on August 28, around 11:20, 2 Russian Su-27 Flanker aircraft intercepted a US Air Force B-52 bomber, which was conducting routine operations in the Black Sea, over international waters.
The Russian pilots flew in an unsafe and unprofessional manner, crossing less than 100 meters from the nose of the B-52 aircraft, a maneuver repeated several times at co-altitude, causing turbulence and restricting the maneuverability of the aircraft. of the B-52.
We constantly hear about interceptions between American, Russian and Chinese planes, but we have rarely seen such remarkable images that highlight exactly what is happening in such actions.
