US Navy video captures "aggressive" Russian flyby

Two Russian warplanes zoomed past the USS Donald Cook earlier week while the American destroyer was patrolling in the Baltic Sea.

Although the warplanes had no visible weaponry, a US official said the actions "one of the most aggressive acts in recent memory".

Video footage filmed from the deck of the Cook shows one of the two Sukhoi SU-24 warplanes coming within feet of the American ship.

The incident happened in international waters, but the US Navy said the passes "could have caused an accident".
