The U.S. denounced a move by an Iranian drone that flew within 100 feet (30 meters) of a U.S. Navy F-18 fighter jet that was preparing to land Tuesday on an aircraft carrier in the Arabian Gulf.
The drone, which reportedly appeared unarmed, caused a US Navy F/A-18E jet to repeatedly manouver to avoid a collision as it attempted to land on the USS Nimitz, CNNreported. The F/A-18 was in a landing pattern several thousand feet off the deck of the ship waiting to land.
It's unclear whether the drone was armed or if Iranian military officials communicated with the Americans, who say they made repeated radio calls warning the drone's operator to keep away.
"The risky maneuver by the QOM-1 in the known vicinity of fixed wing flight operations ... created a collision hazard and is not in keeping with worldwide maritime customs and laws", the statement read.
