Iranian aircraft buzzed U.S. Navy helicopter in Persian Gulf

An Iranian aircraft buzzed a Navy helicopter operating in the Persian Gulf earlier this month, a U.S. military official said Tuesday.

The military official told CNN that an observation aircraft flew within 50 yards of an armed U.S. Navy helicopter.

“We think this might have been locally ordered,” the official said.


The official told CNN that the Navy took pictures of the encounter but will not release them.
