The pilot of a US spy plane flying a regular patrol over the Black Sea reported that a Russian fighter jet carried out an "unsafe and unprofessional" intercept, two US Defense officials told Reuters on Wednesday.

The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said there were multiple interactions between the two aircraft, one of which was determined to be unsafe.

One official said it involved a Russian SU-27 and a US Navy P-8 surveillance plane.
