Ryska Su-27:or genskjuter B-52H över Svarta havet


Recommended Posts

At approximately 11:19 a.m. on Aug. 28, 2020, two Russian Su-27 Flanker pilots intercepted a U.S. Air Force B-52 bomber that was conducting routine operations in the black sea over international waters. The Russian pilots flew in an unsafe and unprofessional manner while crossing within 100 feet of the nose of the B-52 multiple times at co-altitude and while in afterburner causing turbulence and restricting the B-52’s ability to maneuver.

“Actions like these increase the potential for midair collisions, are unnecessary, and inconsistent with good airmanship and international flight rules,” said Gen. Jeff Harrigian, U.S. Air Forces in Europe-Air Forces Africa commander. “While the Russian aircraft were operating in international airspace, they jeopardized the safety of flight of the aircraft involved. We expect them to operate within international standards set to ensure safety and prevent accidents,” he added.

Our B-52 Stratofortress aircraft was conducting routine operations in international airspace exercising our freedom of navigation and overflight. The U.S. Air Force routinely operates aircraft in the region in accordance with recognized international safety standards as prescribed in International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) rules of flight.

Nato fördömer ryskt flygintrång
PUBLICERAD IDAG 12:37 (200901)
Försvarsalliansen Nato fördömer nu skarpt förra veckans händelse då ett ryskt stridsplan flög in över danskt territorium.

Det var i fredags som ett ryskt stridsplan förföljde ett amerikanskt bombplan långt in på danskt luftrum över ön Bornholm. Nato kallar händelsen för ”ett klart brott mot internationell rätt”.

-Fredagens incident är den första i sitt slag på flera år, och tyder på en ny nivå av provokativt ryskt beteende, säger Nato.
