Two Royal Canadian Air Force CF-18 Hornet fighter jets taking part in Operation REASSURANCE Air Task Force Romania intercepted a Russian SU-27 Flanker operating near Romanian airspace over the Black Sea on Wednesday.

The CF-18s were scrambled by NATO’s southern Combined Air Operations Centre at Torrejon, Spain after the Russian aircraft was detected by the Romanian Air Force’s Control and Reporting Centre.

Once on the scene, Canadian fighter pilots carefully monitored the Russian aircraft until it left the Romanian flight information region.
