19. Lots of 'near miss' situations - very few are with the Russians...

I live in Denmark, and nine times the last five years, Danish fighter jets has bothered civilian airliners. For example, in April 2012, two Danish F-16 fighter jets were 27 seconds from colliding with an SAS airliner. September 2012 a Danish F16 flew 240 meters from an civilian airliner heading for Tokyo. And in September 2013 an F-16 flew in a route only 70 meters below an civilian airliner heading for Sweden.

But the Russians also gives problem - especially for Sweden. The Swedes have published a picture where a Russian fighter plane are flying just ten meters from a Swedish aircraft, thereby making it difficult for the Swedish spy plane to make its scheduled observations at the Russian city of Kaliningrad. So rude!

In June two Polish military planes infringed Swedish airspace, but it happened by mistake and everyone has said sorry. And in July Sweden had to send their jets up against a penetrating spy plane. It turned out later to have a good excuse, as it was from USA and just had been forced to fly unannounced into hiding in Sweden, because Russian planes had teased it.

From all the above only the Russian encounters are blown high up in the media. There seems otherwise to be plenty to clean up in the military code of conduct in all countries, as I am sure the people in USA living close to military air bases are aware of. Of course Russia acts are silly, but our own military is answering in the most stupid way possible.
