The US Defense Department has released footage that it says shows a Russian aircraft intercepting a US spy drone over the Black Sea on Tuesday. According to US authorities, this video shows a Russian SU-27 fighter jet approaching the drone and dumping fuel over it, as the aircraft passes closely by - without appearing to cause any damage to the US drone. But Washington says the jet collided with the drone's propeller on a second pass - which is also shown. But the actual collision isn't visible in the edited video released. Damage to the propeller can be seen later on.
