The Pentagon says that a Russian fighter jet flew dangerously close to a USA military reconnaissance plane in global airspace over the Black Sea on Monday.

After the first flight of Russian su-27 in front of the American reconnaissance aircraft EP-3 Aries a crew of United States felt the turbulence, after the second vibration noted in the U.S. Navy in Europe and Africa.

The Russian warplane reportedly closed the distance with the large Aries before activating its afterburner - where fuel is dumped into the exhaust plume for added thrust.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said afterwards: "The boys are very disappointed, I'm very disappointed and we have to do better". They scored a goal and then completely out of the blue they scored a second and the atmosphere completely changed.


US Navy officials said the stunt put the aircraft crew at risk. "The crew of the EP-3 reported turbulence following the first interaction, and vibrations from the second", according to a statement from the US Navy. Then, about 25 minutes later, the fighter jet passed by again, this time turning on its afterburners before speeding away. Navy EP-3E Aries spy plane, it said.

Press Secretary of the Pentagon, Eric Pachon, said that "there is absolutely no justification for such conduct" on the part of another state, because "the USA aircraft operated in accordance with global law and "not provoked" side to such actions". "We expect them to behave within global standards set to ensure safety and to prevent incidents".

The statement from the Navy added that the EP-3 was operating within global law and did not provoke the Russian jet.
