Interception aircraft


Canadian fighters flew to intercept Russian military aircraft

The Canadian air force fighter aircraft flew to intercept a Russian aircraft near the territory of Lithuania.

It is noted that Canadian fighter jets were in Lithuanian airspace when performing a training flight when a message was received that an unidentified aircraft was approaching the EU border. Despite the incident, the Russian aircraft did not violate the EU airspace, as affirmatively reported by the pilots of the aircraft that took off to intercept, as was later established, the Russian military aircraft.

It should be emphasized that according to numerous reports of NATO, Russia is not the first time to frighten them by their unexpected appearance near the borders of various states, in particular, last week Russian planes were approaching the border of Portugal, Canada and the USA, but these actions are legitimate, since The aircraft were in the so-called neutral airspace.
