Not a new thing, but the recent buzzing of a destroyer by Russian attack planes in an attack type run is certainly interesting: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/russia-denies-simulate-attack-on-u-s-navy-destroyer-uss-donald-cook/ https://www.washingtonpost.com/news...t-history-of-russian-jets-buzzing-navy-ships/ Clearly we are sitting just off the coast, which is provocative at the least. At the same time, this is also not "normal flight operations" to do a possible attack profile run within 30' of an armed destroyer. Makes one wonder if: - The destroyer Captain just kept his cool? - Their rules of engagement required no action? - Caught them by surprise? (unlikely, as they were able to video the run) Not knowing the normal attack flight profile of an SU-24, it's not clear to me if this was just wannabe Tom Cruise antics or a fake attack run to test response and get intel.
