The Icelandic newspaper Morgunblaðið reported in his article, two Russian Tu-22M dangerously close to the Icelandic passenger plane flying flight from Reykjavik to Stockholm. About it journalists were told by the pilot of a civil aircraft.
The report said that the incident occurred on September 22 in the airspace of Iceland.
The pilot reported that shortly before the meeting with Russian military aircraft about its possible dangerous rapprochement warned the managers, and they in turn this was announced by the NATO officials who monitor the activity of the Russian aircraft videoconferencing.
In the article it is argued that the Russian aircraft acted off the transponders.
