Russia was accused of “aggression” on Wednesday after two jet fighters carried out practise attacks on a US destroyer, flying so low over the warship they created a “wake in the water”.
The Su-24 strike aircraft swept past the USS Donald Cook at a height of only 30ft as the vessel steamed through international waters in the Baltic. Link.
Flypasts happen, spy ships and all sorts of other silliness at sea but this flypast really seems to be pushing the boundaries.

Really stupid acts here - similar to Russian planes flying without identifier beacons recently because of tensions in Ukraine.
