Russian Jet Skims U.S. Aircraft


Some tense moments in the skies over the Baltic Sea on Monday.

U.S. officials said that an armed Russian fighter jet skimmed by a U.S. Air Force reconnaissance aircraft.

The Russian jet was armed and came withing five feet of the U.S. Plane.

Both the United States and Russia have been having multiple confrontations in the Baltic Sea recently.

This is on the heels of a Russian statement that says it will treat any U.S. jet flying west of the Euphrates River in Syria as a potential target.

A response of this scale is in response to the U.S. Navy jet's shoot-down of a Syrian jet.
