Two Russian jets created a 'wake in the water' as they flew past an American guided missile destroyer today in an 'aggressive' simulated attack, a U.S. official says.
The Sukhoi SU-24 warplanes, which had no visible weaponry, reportedly made 11 passes near the USS Donald Cook in the Baltic Sea.
The aircraft - which had also flown near the ship a day earlier - came so close to the vessel they made a track in the water, it is claimed.
The official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, described the incident as one of the most aggressive interactions in recent memory.
