US aircraft conducted reconnaissance near Crimea

PlaneRadar: a US Air Force plane was conducting reconnaissance in the Black Sea near the Crimean Peninsula peninsula Crimea. This is reported by Izvestia with reference to the monitoring service PlaneRadar.

As the data show, an American military plane took off from an air base on the Greek island of Crete. He carried out reconnaissance in the Black Sea.

Earlier on December 4, a passenger plane en route Tel Aviv – Moscow was forced to change direction in order to avoid rapprochement with a US reconnaissance aircraft over the Black Sea. A US reconnaissance aircraft crossed established civil aviation routes and approached a passenger Airbus. The American pilots did not respond to inquiries from the ground.

Later it became known that the Russian civilian airliner had to evade an oncoming military aircraft at an altitude of ten kilometers. After the US Air Force reconnaissance ignored the signals from the passenger plane and from the ground control, the airliner first lowered the altitude by half a kilometer, and then climbed a kilometer.
