An unarmed Iranian drone buzzed an American Super Hornet fighter jet as it circled an aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf, Defense Department officials said on Tuesday.
USA military officials say an Iranian drone harassed and almost collided with a Navy attack jet Tuesday as it prepared to land on an aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf.
The jet had to maneuver to avoid collision with the QOM-1, coming just 200 feet laterally and 100 feet vertically of each other.
After Navy personnel used an emergency radio frequency to warn the Iranian drone operators to cease their activity, the unmanned aircraft eventually backed off. Officials characterized the drone encounter as an "unsafe and unprofessional" provocation.
Lt. Chloe Morgan, a NAVCENT spokeswoman, issued a statement on the incident.
"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.
