A plane carrying members of the Russian press to the APEC summit in Peru was intercepted and tracked by Swiss fighter jets as soon as it entered the country’s airspace, it lasted for about 10 minutes. This was reported on Facebook by Andrey Kolesnikov, editor-in-chief of Russian Pioneer magazine.
The plane was flying to Peru for the APEC summit, refueling in Lisbon.
Kolesnikov said that the jets were from the Swiss Air Force, as “the flags at the tails and missiles underneath the wings were clearly visible.”
According to him, the fighters were very close, "at arm’s length" that even "unsmiling" Swiss pilots could be seen.
He also said that fighters left the plane later: "Apparently, having reached the Swiss border."
