Russian Su-27 scrambles to intercept the US intelligence aircraft over the Baltic Sea
Russian means of airspace control over the neutral waters of the Baltic Sea detected an air target approaching the State border of the Russian Federation.
A Su-27 fighter jet on duty scrambled to intercept the target.
The crew of the Russian fighter approached a safe distance to the air object and identified it as a P-8A Poseidon spy airplane of the US Air Force.
After it left the Russian air border of Russia, the Su-27 from the duty force on air defence returned to the airfield home.
