Newscast Media MOSCOWA Russian fighter jet has photobombed a group of US warplanes engaged in practice operations over the Baltic Sea.

According to a post on the US Department of Defense’s official twitter account, a Russian Su-27 fighter intercepted a Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker military refueling aircraft during training exercise with two B-1 bombers and one B-52.
A picture of the encounter was posted by the Department of Defense, which also noted that Russian maneuvers had been conducted correctly and were “deemed safe.”
The pictures were taken by a photographer onboard one of the US bomber planes.
The intercept was not the only of such maneuvers carried out by Russian aircraft. On June 6, Russian planes intercepted a B-52 bomber over the Baltic Sea, and escorted it away from Russian airspace. 
The interceptions come amid Russia's increasing concerns over NATO's continued string of so-called training drills near the Russian border.
