Russian fighter executes 'unsafe intercept' of US Navy plane over Black Sea

A P-8A Poseidon assigned to Patrol Squadron 16 is seen in flight over Jacksonville Fla

The maneuver left "violent turbulence" in its wake, forcing the P-8A to deal with a 15-degree roll, according to Baldanza.

The unprofessional behavior demonstrated by the Russian pilot was clearly intentional, according to USA officials.

28 de noviembre de 2017, 07:16Moscow, Nov 28 (Prensa Latina) A Russian fighter SU-30 flew over a US reconaissance aircraft Poseidon (P-8A) and forced it to retreat from a zone near the airspace of this country over the Black Sea, informed the Ministry of Defense.

Traffic above the shared waters in Europe's southeast has resulted in a handful of tense encounters since relations with Moscow deteriorated in 2014 and the near miss between the Russian and USA jets was among the more spectacular.

Russian military confirmed Tuesday that its warplane drove away a U.S. Navy aircraft last week over the Black Sea.

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.

"After moving closer, the Russian [Su-30] fighter jet flew over the object and visually identified it as an American reconnaissance aircraft Р8А Poseidon", the statement reads.

Also speaking to state news agency RIA Novosti, the retired deputy commander of Russia's air force, Nikolay Antoshkin, dismissed the US reaction. The U.S. Navy deemed the interaction safe.

While, Baldanza says that, "The US aircraft was operating in worldwide airspace and did nothing to provoke this Russian behavior".
