Strategic reconnaissance plane of the U.S. air force RC-135W on 13 may, close to the borders of the Kaliningrad region. About it reports “Interfax” with reference to data portals that track the movement of military aviation.
We are talking about the plane number and the call sign 62-4131 TANGY18 who flew with the British air base Mildenhall to perform the job in the southern part of the Baltic sea. It is noted that the scout flies under the radar, as it has the transponder turned on.
This incident was the fourth in a week, when a U.S. reconnaissance plane is approaching the Russian border. Since may 10, data regarding the movement of military aircraft showed that the reconnaissance plane of the U.S. air force RC-135W with tail number and call sign 62-4131 CAMUS47 was flying in the southern part of the Baltic sea.
The day before, on may 12, British Typhoon fighters intercepted three Russian military transport plane in the skies over the Baltic. UK Ministry of defence reported that the An-26, An-12 and Il-76 were intercepted because they did not respond to requests by radio or transmitted identification code.
