Su-27 fighter intercepts American reconnaissance aircraft over the Baltic Sea

104
The US military has spread information that the Russian Su-27 fighter intercepted a reconnaissance aircraft of the US Air Force RC-135, which was moving over the Baltic Sea. At the same time, once again, the Pentagon, presenting the data, stated that “the interception was carried out in an unsafe and unprofessional manner.”


Information Agency TASS cites the statement of the official representative of the Pentagon:
14 On April, the RC-135 plane of the USAF, which was flying a routine route in international airspace over the Baltic Sea, was intercepted by the Russian Su-27. The Russian pilot carried out this interception in an insecure and unprofessional manner. We are protesting the Russian government through diplomatic channels in connection with the incidents that happened this week.


We are also talking about the passage of the Russian Su-24 aircraft in close proximity to the deck of the American destroyer Donald Cook, which was located in the Baltic Sea.

It is interesting that representatives of the US military are investing in the concept of a “routine route” for a reconnaissance aircraft? And if the flight of RC-135 over the neutral waters of the Baltic Sea is about a hundred km from the Baltic base fleet Russia is a “routine," why does the Pentagon not consider routine a Russian fighter to be intercepted by a Russian fighter?

According to CNN, the Russian plane was approaching the RC-135 at a distance of about 15 m and "followed a long time next to it."

Statements by the US military department more closely resemble the actions of the complainant, who is engaged in dirty tricks, but every time lets out tears and snot at the moment of real opposition to such dirty tricks.

    The Russian SU-27 intercepted an American plane 70 kilometers from Florida !!! That would be a sensation! And the fact that we intercept Americans at 70 kilometers from our shores, what is surprising here? We must do it! We will intercept and squeeze them! And the farther, the harder!

          ... a traditional attempt to provoke ... and another storm in a teapot ... they need a persistent media "trick" Russians are inadequate ... then don't be surprised anymore ... Konashenkov calmly and adequately commented:
          Konashenkov also said that on April 14 an unknown air target was discovered by air defense duty officers over the Baltic Sea, which was moving at high speed towards the Russian state border.
          A Su-27 fighter was lifted from the Baltic Fleet, which flew over and determined that the object was a US Air Force RC-135U reconnaissance aircraft.
          After visual contact with the Su-27, the RC-135U reconnaissance aircraft changed course in the opposite direction from the Russian border.
          “The flight of the Su-27 took place strictly in accordance with the international rules for the use of airspace, there were no emergency situations,” Konashenkov emphasized.
          ... in general, everything is as usual ... hi

      And if the flight of RC-135 over the neutral waters of the Baltic Sea is about a hundred kilometers from the base of the Baltic Fleet of Russia, this is a “routine”

      YES !! They test brazenly openly our defense system. And the main complaint is that they don’t let us calmly finish the passage. The girls are dancing interestingly. They are trying to test and open our defense system and they complain to the world community. They say that the Russian insidious completely unarmed aircraft meets a military one. And more recently, even the agreed and authorized Turks said clearly no. This is normal in a democratic way. But the Russians do not act democratically.

          It’s not a good idea to fly and swim in the vicinity of our military bases, and even more so near our borders. And in general, it even became interesting how our pilot there "performed erratic and aggressive maneuvers", "unsafe and unprofessional" (different sources interpret this). America is not even shy about directly declaring its espionage. Apparently they are "offended" that we are capable of intercepting their scouts? The US hawks were completely insolent.

    They quickly forgot something, how they rushed around our Tu-95s in neutral waters and almost "climbed" into the bomb bays? And then, you see, the Su-27 prevented from spying on our naval base, they completely misled the coast, because the Baltic Sea is from the Gulf of Mexico oh, how far!

It would be fun to read such news 3-4 times a day) I am sure that as soon as finances allow, Putin will certainly "do something wrong" in Central or South America. In response to attempts to incite conflicts around Russia, one can respond by deploying small aviation groups around the United States itself. And attention will be distracted and forced to spend money on countermeasures.

    This just confirms the professionalism of the Russian pilot ...

    More often, our pilots would show such "unprofessionalism", discouraging the adversary from swimming, walking, flying where it is not necessary ...

    soldier Normal practice. ALREADY normal, I represent the former pilots of the USSR, you see the "toad" presses, they were not taught for that, but Yeltsin ended.
    I had a classmate, and my fathers were friends. Friendship's father always came from work with a wry face, I asked, is he drinking? No, he is a fighter.
    Under the USSR, it all ended (by agreement, our fathers were not ordinary officers at that time) that we all came to the airfield for the whole day in class. Someone climbed on MIGs, some on Sushki, on simulators, “dived” into suits. And what the girls did, I don't even remember. Chocolate, lemonade, cookies ... Everything was in a good way.
    Now, probably, the youth do not dream. Although, what can I say, if at age 15 you don’t know how to assemble and disassemble Kalash, you don’t know anything about mines, you didn’t wear a gas mask, NOT A MAN. They taught us in the USSR.

    Well, how can such an interception be called carried out "in an unsafe and unprofessional way"?)) Especially when you consider that this is a military aircraft and an American reconnaissance aircraft is not at all a passenger airliner. Themselves here recognize this as aerobatics:

    The pilot of the Russian Su-27, which had intercepted the American RC-135 reconnaissance aircraft over the Baltic, performed an aerobatics “barrel” over it, CNN added.

    “A Russian military plane approached the US reconnaissance aircraft on the left side. After that, he began to rotate around its axis in a spiral and passed over an American aircraft. The plane finished performing the figure on the right side of the scout, ”the TV channel said.

And at the expense of professionalism, so if intercepted then everything was done professionally. Well done! And let THESE fly over Lake Michigan and then look back!
