Russian fighter flies within '10 feet' of US spy plane: US official

A US Navy P-8A Poseidon takes off from Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville, Florida on November 29, 2013A Russian fighter jet flew dangerously close to a US spy plane over the Black Sea on Wednesday, coming within just 10 feet of the American aircraft, a US defense official said. Moscow, however, said the intercept was conducted “in strict accordance with international rules” because the Americans were trying to snoop on Russian army exercises. The Russian defence ministry said in a statement it dispatched Su-27 jets to check out the US P-8 Poseidon planes as they “twice tried to get close to the Russian border over the Black Sea without their transponders turned on”.
