Russian fighter comes within half-mile of US plane over Syria

“A Russian fighter flew within a half-mile of a U.S. warplane over eastern Syria on Oct. 17, officials confirmed Friday. Lt. Gen. Jeffrey Harrigian, commander of U.S. Air Forces Central Command, told AFP Friday that the Russian jet was escorting a large spy plane late that day when it flew dangerously close to the American plane. Harrigian said the Russian pilot likely did not see the American plane because it was dark and the planes did not have their lights on. “
