A Norwegian warplane had a “near miss” with a Russian fighter jet north of Norway, the Nordic nation’s military said Tuesday after showing video of the incident, which backed a complaint made to Moscow.
“The Russian pilot’s behaviour was not quite normal,” Norwegian armed forces spokesman Brynjar Stordal told AFP, commenting on a 26-second film clip released Sunday which appeared to show a fighter jet suddenly cut in front of a Norwegian F-16.

The incident added to climbing tensions between Russia and NATO member states in recent months, underlined by claims of other recent near misses with Russian military jets.
