Russian SU-24 Flies over USS Ross

USS Ross (DDG 71) observes the overflight by a Russian SU 24 aircraft while both were operating in international waters and airspace. Ross continued on her mission after observing the aircraft return to base. At no time did Ross act aggressively nor did she deviate from her planned operations. The conduct of her crew has been and continues to be professional. Ross' Sailors observed that the SU 24 carried no weapons - wings were "clean." The U.S. Navy operates ships in the Black Sea on a routine basis, consistent with the Montreux Convention and International Law."
