BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 P.M.) – A Russian Su-35S fighter jet reportedly intercepted a U.S. F-22 Raptor combat aircraft over Syria, the Defence-Blog.com reported today.

The Defence Blog’s report cited an Instagram photo from an unofficial Russian pilot, today; it showed the moment the F-22 Raptor was allegedly intercepted by the Russian Su-35S.

“Photographs, made by the infrared search and track fire control system of the Russian Su-35S, shows in (SIC) infrared spectrum an F-22 Raptor fighter jet flying over Syria,” the Defence Blog reported.

No further details were released.

Neither the U.S. Coalition nor the Russian Ministry of Defense have reported of any such event taking place over the skies of Syria.

This could be huge! Clearly, no Russian pilot would publish such a photo without permission.
Either it is a fake, or an indirect warning that F-22 are very well tracked by Russian fighters.
Look at how clear the picture is! To say the truth, the picture is even too clear, so the possibility that it is fake is high.
If true, however, say goodby to F-22 (and F-35) stealthness!
