For the first time since the begin of the war in Ukraine, we have tracked a mission of a manned aircraft over the Black Sea.
In the past few days we have tracked several missions by US Navy Poseidons, but these always were carried out next into Romanian and Bulgarian FIR. In this case, however, we’ve tracking a mission over all the Black Sea, which has so far only been carried out by USAF and NATO drones.
It was an RAF Boeing RC-135W (reg. ZZ665) that remained in the area for about two hours, orbiting in the eastern part of its flight from where it was possible to monitor the Azov Sea.
