A Russian jet spiraled dangerously close to an American plane over the Baltic Sea earlier this week.

The plane, a Russian SU-27, performed a barrel roll over a US RC-135 in international airspace, the US European Command told CNN on Saturday.

The Russian jet began its course on the left side of the American reconnaissance plane, then went over it while spiraling on itself and finished on the right side.

Russia’s aircraft ‘performed erratic and aggressive maneuvers’ on Thursday during a routine flight, European Command spokesman Danny Hernandez told CNN.
