Daily pictures : a piloting skills issue

squared (Russian trolling)

What talent : without giggle

Our jets did not use weapons against the drone
which as a result of sharp maneuvring
lost control and dropped into the water

While attempting to break into Russian airspace near Crimea, a US spy drone MQ-9 Reaper fell into the Black Sea. I guess that the pilot was emotional.

The US statement

Two Russian Su-27 aircraft conducted an unsafe and unprofessional intercept with a US Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance unmanned MQ-9 Reaper aircraft that was operating within international airspace over the Black Sea today.

At approximately 7:03 AM (CET), one of the Russian Su-27 aircraft struck the propeller of the MQ-9, causing US forces to have to bring the MQ-9 down in international waters. Several times, before the collision, the Su-27s dumped fuel on and flew in front of the MQ-9 in a reckless, environmentally unsound and unprofessional manner. This incident demonstrates a lack of competence in addition to being unsafe and unprofessional

Environmentally sound but not so talented.
