Two Russian warplanes with no visible weaponry flew simulated attack passes near a U.S. guided missile destroyer in the Baltic Sea Tuesday, a U.S. official said, describing it as one of the most aggressive interactions in recent memory.A Russian KA-27 Helix helicopter also made seven passes around the USS Donald Cook, taking pictures.The first incident took place on April 11, when two SU-24 jets flew about 20 passes near the Donald Cook, coming within 1,000 yards (metres) of the ship, at about 100 feet (30 metres) in altitude.
