The Ministry of Defense of Colombia announced the "interception" of the Russian air control station Il-96-400VPU

55

The information that Colombian Air Force fighters were taking off to "intercept" the Russian Il-96 board was confirmed. The information is confirmed by the official Bogota.


According to the Colombian Defense Ministry, the Russian Il-96-400VPU "violated Colombian airspace." After that, Colombian Air Force fighters were reportedly taken into the air. According to the latest data, these are Israeli-made KFIR multi-role fighters (developed in the 1970s). In Israel itself, these aircraft ceased to operate exactly 25 years ago.

The Colombian Defense Ministry claims that the Russian aircraft "was intercepted." At the same time, it was first announced that the aircraft was "intercepted" already in the airspace of Colombia, then - "at the entrance to it."

From the report:

The Russian state board was ordered to immediately leave Colombian airspace.

It was later revealed that the Russian Il-96 had permission to pass through Colombian airspace. However, the Ministry of Defense of this South American country said that the plane "deviated from the agreed route":

The coordinates of its crossing of the air borders of Colombia differed from the agreed ones.

In this regard, the question arises: if the plane did manage to enter Colombian airspace, then what kind of "interception" at its entrance are they talking about in the Colombian Ministry of Defense? And if the Il-96 did not have time to enter this space, then what kind of "difference between the coordinates and the agreed ones" can we talk about?

For your information:

The Il-96-400VPU is an air command post (which is clear from the abbreviation used). In the West, such aircraft are called "doomsday planes." It is known that the plane flew from Moscow.

It should be noted that Colombia borders Venezuela. Official Caracas has repeatedly accused the Colombian special services of having links with the CIA, which (the connections) are being used to destabilize the situation in Venezuela and attempts to remove Maduro from the post of President.

    They are muddy like moonshine, then you entered, then you did not enter, then there was permission, then it did not fly correctly. They themselves do not know what they want. Or they just didn’t have time to receive the order from above.

        First, they would learn to intercept planes and UAVs with a cargo of cocaine, and only then report back to the owners from the CIA about " interception of TLU "

    Russian Il-96-400VPU "violated Colombian airspace"
    And the route turns out to have been agreed in advance. The US puppet decided to show its adherence to the ideals of "democracy" and "intercepted" a Russian plane that was flying along an agreed route. A feat of Colombian pilots? Probably because you don't often see such a large Russian plane. It would be better if the "defenders" of the sky fought against drug cartels.

        The most important thing here is not that he was intercepted or confused in the testimony, but that he IS there !!! Not all natamas around the Crimea are spinning. Such planes do not fly alone for nothing. So there is something to manage from him in a very close proximity to you, you know, not some Colombia.

          Yes, a very interesting message. So we should expect soon to Venezuela with a visit of Tu-160, and maybe Tu-95 for the company. And surely in the Caribbean there is something under the water surface.

      An airplane is not a gift for the United States and NATO ... And it smelled not only of the counter-fight against drug trafficking ... good hi

    IL 96 400 VPU, what is he doing there in Latin America, how much and where he sat down for refueling. He flew on IL 86 to Latin America, there were 2 or 3 intermediate landings. The board is a military man who is so kind and let him fly over him. .Something I have doubts about this information.

        "Moscow-Havana" along the spawn 9600 km (route ~ 10000 km). The Il-96-300 range with full payload is 9800 km. With full tanks - 14000 km. Do not confuse IL-96 with IL-86.

        It is unlikely that the navigation system there is much more accurate than on the usual IL-96. Is that GLONASS does not have coarsening (and is it, coarseness, is there, in general?). The essence of the modification is in other equipment, not navigation.

      Andrey, I have always thought that these planes, in the case of a nix, should fly over their territory, and not hang around the borders of a potential enemy. Or maybe this is a knight's move? They will look for him with us, and he hangs around with them.

    As for the permission to fly over Colombia, it was most likely given at first, and then doubts arose about the expediency, as a result of which they could be canceled. the Russian crew could be deaf, after which the fighters escorted him out. the flight to Manila itself could easily pass over the ocean without visiting the Colombian space.
