A video of a “dangerous interception" in Syria with the participation of the Su-35

According to the US 6th Fleet, on Tuesday May 26, two Su-35 Russian fighters “in dangerous form” intercepted the US Poseidon P-8A patrol anti-submarine aircraft over the waters of the Mediterranean Sea, off the coast of Syria. This is reported by the American edition of The Drive, which publishes on its website a video of "dangerous interception."

According to the United States Navy, Russian planes flew on either side of Poseidon for 65 minutes:

On May 26, 2020, a US Navy P-8A aircraft flew over international waters in the eastern Mediterranean and was intercepted by two Russian Su-35s, flying 65 minutes in the immediate vicinity of Poseidon. The actions of Russian fighters were recognized as dangerous and unprofessional due to the fact that the aircraft of the Russian Federation were at a close distance from the wings of the P-8A at the same time, reducing the ability of the P-8A to safe maneuvers

- The report says the US military.

The Drive also points to the routine of “unprofessional and unsafe” interceptions by US fighters of US aircraft in Europe and elsewhere in the world. They are so “ordinary” that the US Navy even designed special cameras for its EP-3E Aries II air reconnaissance to collect data on such incidents.

    US pilots, as usual, professionally put on pants.

    And this is a "dangerous interception" ??? Honestly, I remembered myself when I first drove onto the road in Moscow for the first time. Really my knees were shaking. Why am I? It seemed to me then that all the other drivers around were "dangerous" maneuvering, "intercepting", etc. So here are rather questions to the US flyers: since they are afraid to fly next to our flyers, let them sit at home.

      Maybe there two such "recruits" met in the sky and shied away from each other. laughing
      You were just lucky in that you were on the road on your first independent trip to Moscow, and imagine for a minute, bam in London. And there, in general, everyone goes the other way. wassat The fact that for some in the order of things may seem to others an absolute savagery, but not the fact that they also do not know how.
