The Russian SU-27 approached alongside within 25 feet of the U.S. aircraft and then flew inverted over the top of the plane to the other side, Lt. Col. Michelle L. Baldanza, a U.S. Army spokesperson, said in a statement.

A Russian MiG-31 jet flew within 50 feet of a U.S. surveillance aircraft in Northeast Asia last week, Moscow’s latest aerial saber-rattling against American ships and planes, according to defense officials.

“On April 21, a U.S. Navy P-8 Maritime Patrol reconnaissance aircraft flying a routine mission in international airspace was intercepted by a MiG-31 Russian jet in the vicinity of the Kamchatka Peninsula,” Cmdr.

Russian fighter jets get close to U.S. destroyer

Apparently the neo-Soviets have a thing for the USS Donald Cook, being that this is their second time harassing it. The first time around, in 2014, they actually shut it down with advanced electronic warfare equipment.

Update 2: Another new video, different angle:

 

(CNN) Unarmed Russian fighter jets made two extremely close overflights this week of the USS Donald Cook, sailing in the Baltic Sea, CNN has learned.

Navy officials are not commenting publicly, but inside the Pentagon there is an intense discussion about releasing video and still photos of the Russian encounter to demonstrate the danger the jets posed to the ship, a U.S. official told CNN.

One of the Russian jets flew within 75 feet of the Cook’s ship superstructure.

Deal Between Merkel, Erdogan Will Be the End of Europe – German Media

EU leaders are expected to meet with the Turkish president on Sunday to discuss the deal – billions of euros for Ankara’s agreement to help resolve the migrant crisis.

If Turkey And Russia Continue Fighting, It May Threaten NATO’s Existence

We all knew it would happen, whether off the coast of Alaska, over the Baltic Sea, or in the Middle East. Russian President Vladimir Putin has been routinely challenging the NATO airspace for months, well before entering the Syrian conflict. Military experts warned that Russian aircraft flying in crowded airspace with transponders off is a recipe for disaster. Continue reading

What frightened the USS Donald Cook so much in the Black Sea?

Do people have any idea of the current state of America’s military and any clue whatsoever how grave the situation is? The U.S. nuclear deterrent system is in shambles and the government has no clue what to do about it, Chinese fighter jets are more advanced than their American counterparts and the Russians can disable U.S. Navy ships because the technology is so advanced it’s exactly what makes it vulnerable. The lack of technology is sometimes a strength. The Russian display of technology indicates that they could possibly even in the future invade with very little difficulty, especially if it’s as easy as turning off a TV with a remote control as in this case.

As the article states, the USS Donald Cook has the most recent Aegis Combat System, which is what makes the overall state of the U.S. military so grave. Russia is signaling it can strike, and strike successfully. For those who believe in Bible prophecy and wonder how a land of unwalled villages can be attacked as described in Ezekiel 38, 39 can take place, here is your wake-up call.

If you, as an American aren’t concerned, then there’s something wrong with you.

The sword is coming.

Currently installed on the most sophisticated US Navy warships and in the process of being set up throughout the entire range of NATO naval forces, this missile defense system was completely knocked out in the Black Sea by a Russian electronic warfare device.

The State Department acknowledged that the crew of the destroyer USS Donald Cook has been gravely demoralized ever since their vessel was flown over in the Black Sea by a Russian Sukhoi-24 (Su-24) fighter jet which carried neither bombs nor missiles but only an electronic warfare device.

On 10 April 2014, the USS Donald Cook entered the waters of the Black Sea and on 12 April a Russian Su-24 tactical bomber flew over the vessel triggering an incident that, according to several media reports, completely demoralized its crew, so much so that the Pentagon issued a protest [1].

The USS Donald Cook (DDG-75) is a 4th generation guided missile destroyer whose key weapons are Tomahawk cruise missiles with a range of up to 2,500 kilometers, and capable of carrying nuclear explosives. This ship carries 56 Tomahawk missiles in standard mode, and 96 missiles in attack mode. Continue reading

APNEWSBREAK: Russian Jet Passes Near US Warship

…and the best this administration can do in response to this blatant act of war is call it ‘unprofessional‘.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, U.S. military officials said Monday.

In the first public account of the incident, the officials said the Russian Fencer made 12 passes, and flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level.

The U.S. warship issued several radio queries and warnings using international emergency circuits, but the Russian aircraft did not respond. Continue reading
