US Fighter Jets Draw Inappropriate Picture Over Sky Of Country
(PatriotWise.com) – Politico reports that a jet from the United States Air Force made what seemed to be male appendage in the sky near a Russian military post in Syria on Tuesday night.
The pilots of a KC-135 Stratotanker for the United States Air Force looped their aircraft near the base in Tartus, Syria, forming what seems to be the genitalia of males on the flight radar. According to the source, it is unknown whether the aircraft vessel left Crete, Greece, for refueling or whether the pilots were merely on a mission to fool Moscow’s ground crew on the base.
According to FlightRadar24, the aircraft made a tight loop in the ocean between Cyrus and Lebanon, forming an oval before forming two smaller circles at the base and returning to the top of the oval a second time.
According to a USAFE representative, the path’s irregular appearance and apparent phallic shape were not intended.
Capt. Ryan Goss stated in a statement that the KC-135 Stratotanker (RAKE71) operating in the Eastern Mediterranean changed between numerous distinct flight tracks throughout the operation.
There was no intention on the part of the pilots or the unit to generate a vulgar outline, even though these modifications and motions appear to accomplish so. The USAF, AMC [Air Mobility Command], and USAFE-AFAFRICA will continue to uphold the highest standards of professionalism and airmanship as we investigate this.
Air Mobility Command’s chief spokesperson, Air Force Col. Damien Pickart, told the newspaper that although the crew is being questioned about the event, he doesn’t think they misbehaved.
The move caught the attention of the Kyiv Post, a news outlet in Ukraine, which tweeted that “Christmas came early” in response to the strategy.
According to a report by the Guardian, the Mediterranean Sea was previously a source of tension between the United States Navy and Russian aircraft, as they came dangerously close to colliding in the region last February. This occurred during a period of heightened tension between the two countries prior to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
A Carnegie Endowment for International Peace report indicated that the Kremlin’s current objective is to prevent NATO from using this option. The information was cited in the story. “The Kremlin may desire to dominate the Mediterranean one day,” the report stated.
