A Russian Su-27 jet fighter collided with an American MQ-9 Reaper drone over the Black Sea on Tuesday, the US army’s European Command mentioned.
“Our MQ-9 plane was conducting routine operations in worldwide airspace when it was intercepted and hit by a Russian plane, leading to a crash and full lack of the MQ-9,” mentioned US Air Power Common James Hecker, commander of US Air Forces Europe and Air Forces Africa.
“In actual fact, this unsafe and unprofessional act by the Russians almost brought about each plane to crash.”
