It was not the first time that a Russian rocket approached an American aircraft over the Black Sea near Crimea.

Last Sunday, Fox News announced another incident occurred between a U.S. Navy reconnaissance plane and a Russian fighter jet on Friday above the Black Sea near Crimea.

This incident occurred after the encounter of U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. U.S. officials said that a Russian Su-27 approached U.S. Navy P-8 Poseidon recon aircraft, flying within 12 meters of it.

After this incident, an aerial activity was again reported by Fox News. The two activities happened after U.S. Air Force intercepted two Russian bombers and two Russian fighter jets near Alaska two weeks ago.
