U.S. official: U.S. spy plane avoids dangerous run in with Russian jet by flying into Sweden's airspace without permission

    


U.S. Military officials confirmed that a U.S. Air Force spy plane dodged the Russian military by flying into nearby Swedish airspace without permission.

A RC-135V/W Rivet Joint reconnaissance plane conducting a mission in international air space July 18 had to alter its course when Russia began tracking the plane with land-based radar.

The Russians then sent at least one fighter jet into the sky to intercept the American plane, U.S. officials told the news network.In order to shake off the radar tracking as quickly as possible, the spy plane crew made the call to fly into Swedish airspace.

The decision was made without Swedish military approval.
