On the frame you can see how the Russian fighter flies a few meters from the US reconnaissance aircraft, demonstrating its missile weapons. We are talking about air-to-air missiles.
Recall that earlier in the Pentagon and the State Department, the United States stated that the Su-27 Russian Federation Air Force flew up to an American aircraft at a distance of about 1,5 m. According to Heather Nauert (State Department Speaker), such a "Russian pilot behavior could provoke a plane crash," and unacceptable piloting. ”The State Department does not comment on whether it is permissible to find an American reconnaissance aircraft several thousand kilometers from the United States.
On the presented frames, you can see that the distance from the Su-27 fighter of the Russian Aeronautical Spacecraft to the reconnaissance aircraft of the US Air Force is slightly more than one and a half meters.
The official release of the American headquarters:
29 January 2018 of the year, the Russian Su-27 aircraft intercepted an EP-3 aircraft of the US Air Force that was in international airspace over the Black Sea. This interaction was found to be unsafe due to the Su-27 approaching up to five feet and intersecting the direct flight path of EP-3, with the result that EP-3 was forced to fly through a Su-27 jet stream. The duration of the accompaniment lasted 2 hours 40 minutes.
