Just after US President Donald Trump told Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin to “get ready” for a missile strike the feared aircraft took to the sky.

US forces put a Boeing E-4B Nightwatch plane into the air from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Indiana.

The Nightwatch – also known as the Doomsday Plane – is an airborne nuclear war command centre.

It would allow the US to maintain a chain of command in the event of a major war and is mobile communications hub.

Pentagon officials declined to give any information about the flight which came amid fears of an imminent World War 3.

The Doomsday Plane is one of 10 emergency airborne command posts which can be deployed in the outbreak of war.

President Trump, along with his top generals and secretary of defence, would be expected to be board the plane during a conflict.

US forces keep the planes on round-the-clock alert should the world plunge into a nuclear war.

The planes are summoned into action by a klaxon, and one is always kept within range of the US President’s location – even when he is outside the US.

Pentagon officials declined to comment on the deployment of the plane when speaking to Russian TV, saying the US carries out “numerous missions every day”.
