U.S. Aircraft Flies Inverted Within Feet of Russian Jet, Flips Bird
Washington, D.C. – Sources within the Pentagon have confirmed a recent U.S. encounter with a Russian MiG-28 early Monday morning. The American F-14A Tomcat manned by United States Naval Aviator Lieutenant Pete “Maverick” Mitchell and his Radar Intercept Officer Lieutenant Junior Grade Nick “Goose” Bradshaw, responded to a rogue bogey in the region. They were dispatched from the USS Enterprise (CVN-6) Aircraft Carrier which was, at the time, traveling across the Indian Ocean approximately 400 miles off the coast of Pakistan.
During the engagement, “Maverick” flew his Tomcat parallel with the Russian MiG and inverted his aircraft. This gave both pilots an obstructed view into the rival cockpits. It was at this time that “Maverick” gave the Russian pilot the finger as “Goose” snapped a photograph.
This brazen encounter led the U.S. Navy to invite this renegade team to the “Top Gun” school at Naval Air Station Miramar, where they will compete to become the best of the best.
