US Military Video From Su-27 VS MQ-9 Incident Over Black Sea

US European Command released footage of the Mar. 14, 2023 incident in which a Russian Su-27 made repeated unsafe harassment passes against a US MQ-9 Reaper drone and eventually clipped its propeller, dropping the American aircraft into the Black Sea.


Footage shows the Russian warplane making aggressive maneuvers in an attempt to dump fuel onto the US Reaper drone. One the last pass, the Russian jet actually strikes the drone and the video feed cuts out.
