Russian Aircraft Buzzed a U.S. Destroyer in Black Sea: Pentagon

Four Russian aircraft flew in an "unsafe and unprofessional" manner near a U.S. Navy destroyer in the Black Sea, according to the Pentagon.

A defense official told NBC News that a Russian Su-24 flew within 200 yards of the USS Porter last week, flying at an altitude of just 300 feet and a speed in excess of 500 knots. The jet was armed.

In a separate incident, two other Russian Su-24s came within 300 yards of the ship. They were not armed.
