Russian Su-27 Aggressively 'Pushes' A U.S. F-15 By Banking Across It (Video)



Daily Mail: Astonishing moment Russian jet 'pushes' US F-15 by banking across it 'during NATO patrol over Baltic Sea'

* Russian fighter aggressively forced US-made plane to divert from its flight path
* The Su-27 cut across the F-15 from the side during the dangerous manoeuvre
* Pentagon said Russian jet had come close to colliding with one of its fighters over Black Sea on Monday - but it's not known if the two incidents are related

A Russian fighter jet has been filmed forcing a US F-15 to turn away and change course by flying dangerously close to the American aircraft.

In footage circulating on Russian social media, the Su-27 fighter comes into frame and makes a sharp left to bank across the F-15 from the side.

The US-made plane has no choice but to move out of the way as the Russian jet came within feet of hitting it.

The Pentagon said that a Russian jet came dangerously close to one of its fighters over the Black Sea on Monday.

This happened because the US is constantly harassing Russia (and China, too) by flying military aircraft off their coasts and near their boders. How many Russia spy planes and fighter aircraft do you see flying near the coasts of the US?

Some one has not been paying attention

Russian Bombers Did Not Enter U.S. Airspace

U.S. Navy tracks Russian spy ship 30 miles off Virginia coast

How many Russian ships & planes? As much as the Russian have a budget for and platform uptime for.

Ditto Iran

China nails down the South China sea, watch them sail off the coast of India and US often.

I don't think the Su-27 was aggressive at all considering the context.Russian Twitter says the F-15 got to close to a Russian transport with government officials on board. If this is the case, it was a great response; better than pulling behind and lighting him up with your fire control radar, which some pilots might have been tempted to do.

The video is shot from the Russian transport. The Flanker forced away an F15 shadowing to close. The F15 is the aggressor.

How close is too close? A mile? 10 miles?
