The United States says the EP-3 Aries was flying in international airspace at the time when the Russian jet conducted two high-speed passes which they say were unsafe. The intercept lasted around 25 minutes according to the US Navy, with the EP-3 experiencing turbulence. The US Navy says their aircraft was operating within international law and that they did not provoke the response by the Russian fighter.
