Russian fighter jet flies within 5ft of US Navy surveillance aircraftA Russian fighter jet came within 5ft of a US surveillance plane as it flew over the Black Sea, in what the US called an “unsafe interaction”. The flight path of the Russian jet forced the US Navy aircraft, which was flying in international airspace, to end its mission prematurely, a US official said. “This is but the latest example of Russian military activities disregarding international norms and agreements,” the US State Department said in a separate statement.
