Here’s the latest ultra-low level Russian Su-24 Fencer flyby

Two Su-24MR Fencer jets perform an ultra-low level flyby on an unknown base in Russia.

Here’s the latest stunt by two Russian Air Force Su-24s that buzz other planes, people at an unknown base somewhere in Russia.

Unlike previous episodes, were only a single Su-24 was filmed, the brand new footage shows two aircraft perform the low pass, releasing also flares to make it a bit more pyrotechnic.

Last month, a Russian Su-24MR, flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, the U.S. Navy destroyer operating in the Black Sea following the crisis in Ukraine, a show of force considered  “provocative and inconsistent with international agreements.”
