The Navy has released three photos of Russian Su-24 aircraft flying close to the destroyer USS Porter in the Black Sea, which occurred last Friday.

A U.S. official said the planes, which also included an IL-38 patrol aircraft, flew within 200 yards of the destroyer at an altitude of 300 feet, Reuters reported.

That is pretty darn close, IMO...  sooner or later, someone is going to get hurt.
All animals are created equal; Some just take longer to cook.   Survival is keeping an eye on those around you...
