I doubt the US media will report this.

Quote:A mystery airplane that passed over Swedish airspace recently has been revealed as an American aircraft, sources revealed on Thursday.

The flight passed over Gotland, an island off the east coast of Sweden, on July 18th in the late afternoon.

A classified document from the Swedish Defence Force, which was leaked on Wednesday, revealed that the mystery flight passed over Swedish airspace from the east.

The plane, a Boeing RC-135, was denied permission to pass over Swedish airspace, but the pilots chose to disregard the refusal.

On Thursday a source to the Svenska Dagbladet (SvD) newspaper revealed that the plane was an American reconnaissance aircraft.

The paper reported that the plane was being chased across the Baltic Sea by a Russian aircraft that had flown up from the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad.

That doesn't sound right at all. You know the MSM in the States won't touch this, it portrays the Air Force as weak and inept. *ahem*

I understood perfectly, and that's actually a damn good point. Did the US get caught spying on "allies" again? bored.gif

Oh we'll never know half of the things that go on. What I'd like to know is why the US plane was allowed to fly so long in Swedish airspace without permission without any of their jets were scrambled. There's a military base on Gotland, the very island the aircraft flew over.
