WATCH Swedish SPY PLANE intercepted by Russian Su-27 over Baltic Sea
A Russian Sukhoi Su-27 fighter jet was deployed to intercept an unidentified aircraft moving towards the Russian border. The potential intruder turned out to be a Gulfstream jet collecting intelligence for the Swedish military.
The Swedish spy plane turned off its transponder while conducting a mission over the Baltic Sea, the Russian Defense Ministry reported on Thursday.
A video released by the Defense Ministry shows the Su-27 approaching the Gulfstream for identification, and shadowing it for some time until the Swedish jet changes course and leaves. The encounter happened in neutral airspace.
