The Lyrics

A news item from two days ago.
Pest at play, the Sukhoi seemed so far away
In the Baltic, a Poseidon was well on its way
Such a dangerous game to play

Suddenly, the fighter was within thirty feet
That's much more than shadowing
The pest at play wouldn't stay away

Why it had to show, no one knows, Russia wouldn't say
But it came on strong, weapons on display

In Cold War days this was an easy game to play
U.S.S.R. against the U.S.A.
Saber-rattling days

Why it had to show, no one knows, Russia wouldn't say
But it came on strong, weapons on display

Pest at play, guess it's Putin's lust for long-gone days
Su-27 closed to mere ten feet away
A dangerous move to make

Quite a buuuuuuzzzzzzzzzz!!!
This happens a lot in the Black Sea, among other things. Some say it is retaliation for American spying in the Black Sea region and ASW against Russian subs active.

This is what is known as an unsafe intercept over international waters. However, the P-8A was close to the Russian border trying to spy on military exercises and had its transponder off. The Flanker pilot came close for visual identification and was within norms at 30 feet. Such incidents happen all the time. But 10 feet was dangerously close. Earlier this year, Russian jets intercepted RC-135s spying too.
