Now it's Sweden's turn. Reports say the SU-27 came within 2 meters of the S102B (Gulfstream G-IV) flying a mission over the Baltic Sea.

Is this turning into a competition to see who can get the closest without touching? 5m the other day, 2m today? What next? 15cm?

I speculated that in a previous thread. And actually the other claim was 5ft. Hell even 2m (just shy of 7ft) is unbelieveable! Just like I stated in the other thread, guesstimate an object 7ft away from you. Now imagine that object and you moving SxS at even 300kts. That fighter pilot could've blinked and collided!
