(Worthy News) - Two Russian planes buzzed the American nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan as it sailed in international waters east of the Korean peninsula, Stars and Stripes reports.

The news outlet reports the Ronald Reagan scrambled four fighter jets after the Russian reconnaissance planes came within one nautical mile Tuesday morning.
