An American anti-submarine aircraft is circling in the area of ​​\uXNUMXb\uXNUMXbSnake Island

An American anti-submarine aircraft has been circling in the area of ​​​​Snake Island for several hours.

The American military anti-submarine aircraft Boeing P-8A Poseidon has been circling for several hours in the area of ​​​​Snake Island. It is known that the aircraft operates not only in the airspace of Romania, neighboring Ukraine, but also in the airspace over the western part of the Black Sea. At the same time, the approach to Snake Island is about 45-50 kilometers.

In the presented image, you can see the flight route of the American military anti-submarine patrol aircraft Boeing P-8A Poseidon. The latter is in the air for a very long time. Moreover, what is quite remarkable, the crew of a military aircraft periodically turns off the transponder, obviously not wanting to be detected, but at the same time not creating a danger to civilian aircraft.

To date, this is the first attempt by U.S. military aircraft to approach Snake Island since the Russian military abandoned the island as a goodwill move late last month. Moreover, at the moment, the purpose of the flight made by the American aircraft remains unknown - judging by the data of satellite images, there are no ships in this region, but the aircraft’s continuous circling over one point indicates the detection of an object in the waters of the Black Sea.
