So what was that Iranian aircraft doing buzzing over the carrier Dwight D. Eisenhower last week?
Filming it, according to the Iran’s naval chief.
TEHRAN – An Iranian navy plane that came close to a US aircraft carrier in the Gulf was filming the vessel, the Fars news agency quoted Iran’s naval chief as saying on Tuesday.
“The F27 plane of the navy flew above this aircraft carrier and took a thorough film. Despite the carrier’s objection we insist that this is our right,” the agency quoted Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayari as saying.
