Why a Russian surveillance plane can fly over Bedminster but you can't

Not Released

A Russian air force spy plane flew from Moscow to the USA on Wednesday, buzzing over the nation's capital before making a pass over Bedminster, New Jersey, where President Donald Trump is now vacationing at one of his golf resorts. It also passed by Joint Base Andrews, home to Air Force One.

A law enforcement source told CNN that the plane also overflew Camp David, the presidential retreat in the Catoctin Mountains, the Trump National Golf Course in Virginia, and Mount Weather, one of the USA government's secret relocation bunkers.

We are being told that apparently, a Russian recon plane was "allowed" to fly over the Pentagon, the Central Intelligence Agency headquarters, and over President Trumps golf course and it had full clearance to do so. The DTRA would not confirm Wednesday's Russian flights but said a typical mission conducted under the treaty has multiple flights taking place over several days. The mission will be flown under the Open Skies Treaty which entered into force in 2002.

The flight, which took off from Moscow early Wednesday, appeared to comply with the 1992 Treaty on Open Skies that allows each country to conduct surveillance flights over the other's territory, Politico said. Open Skies allows for unarmed aerial surveillance flights over the entire territory of a participating country.

The State Department said the United States and Russian Federation have done a combined 165 flights under the treaty over the past 15 years.

Both the USA and Russian Federation are signatories to the treaty along with 32 other nations.

The web site concludes: 'Open Skies is one of the most wide-ranging worldwide arms control efforts to date to promote openness and transparency in military forces and activities'. After each flight, the host nation gets a copy of any imagery taken by the observation aircraft.

"Any violation of the Russian airspace was prevented", the ministry said.
