US Navy: su-27 approached the spy plane too close

In the U.S. Navy issued an official statement on the incident over the Black sea, where Russian su-27 “greeted” by approaching the air border of the Russian American spy plane EP-3 Aries.

The Americans considered the convergence unsafe because the fighter was just fifteen feet away from the scout. It is argued that the su-27 went through the flight route of the EP-3, forcing it to pass through the slipstream of a jet engine. According to the U.S. Navy, the interception lasted 2 hours and 40 minutes.

While the Russian defense Ministry said earlier that the su-27 approached the spy planes at a safe distance and accompanied until then, until he began to move away from the airspace of the Russian Federation.
