Russian Pilot Shoots Down British Fighter Jet Over the Black Sea

Russian pilot shoots at British fighter jet over the Black Sea

BBC reports that a Russian pilot fired a missile at a British aircraft over the Black Sea last year

According to the report, he fired two missiles at the British plane because he thought he was authorized to do so

One of the missiles did not reach its target, but the second missile passed close to the aircraft’s wing

This incident occurred over the Black Sea, and at the time, Russia claimed that it was a technical malfunction that caused the shooting

US military sources later described this incident as a close and very frightening shot

The Ministry of Defense in Britain accepted Russia’s explanation regarding a malfunction in the identification and missile launch system

According to a BBC reporter, the reason for accepting this explanation was that the Ministry of Defense did not want to disclose the details of its intelligence-gathering operations or escalate tensions further
