“If you’re carrying out surveillance, I’d be surprised if anyone did it so overtly,” says Matthew Powell, teaching fellow in Strategic and Air Power Studies at RAF College Cranwell and the University of Portsmouth. “So perhaps these are attempts to test American reactions without risking too much or a means of putting pressure on Washington and testing boundaries.” And perhaps the USAF’s purported befuddlement is also a bluff, designed to keep the visitors coming. The target practice might come in handy.
