Rus­sian bombers fly­ing too close to air­lin­ers

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Ice­land com­plained that Rus­sian air force bombers have been fly­ing too close to civil air­lin­ers, the most re­cent in­ci­dent in­volv­ing a flight from Reyk­javik. The Ice­landic for­eign min­istry said three Tupolev Tu-160 bombers flew be­tween 6000 and 9000 feet (1800 and 2700 me­tres) be­low the plane fly­ing from Reyk­javik to Stock­holm on Septem­ber 22. The min­istry said it “has re­peat­edly ob­jected to uniden­ti­fied Rus­sian mil­i­tary flights, due to the dan­ger this may pose to pas­sen­ger flights” and would be do­ing so again.
