Dangerous approach of aircraft


The Russian Air Force aircraft could collide with a passenger airliner

Not far from Sweden there was a dangerous rapprochement of a Russian military aircraft with a passenger airliner.

According to the Swedish Minister of Defense, a radar reconnaissance aircraft that flew in international airspace disconnected transponders, so that civil aviation services could not track it. A dangerous rapprochement of aircraft was detected by the Swedish Air Force, after which the civil airliner was urgently required to change the course.

Among other things, airplanes of the Swedish and Danish air forces were also brought up to the sky, but they could do nothing more than escort the Russian military aircraft. Swedish authorities already note that such flights are dangerous for civil aviation, and therefore strongly recommend that Russia adjust its course on civil flights.
