Russian spy plane spotted flying over Chicago

CHICAGO ó Just as Chicagoans were settling into dinner, and the White Sox were in the middle of a doubleheader on the South Side Tuesday, a Russian Air Force jet flew over Chicago at high altitude, likely collecting reconnaissance along the way.

The flights are allowed under the Treaty on Open Skies, which permits member nations to conduct pre-arranged aerial surveillance over each otherís territory. The flights are meant to give member nations the opportunity to confirm each other are abiding by the rules of military treaties. Rules require the planes to be unarmed but they do contain high tech surveillance and monitoring equipment.

10. Pre arranged ...

Then it's not really a 'spy' plane lol.

That headline is sorta misleading; I'm fine with this, it means were honoring our obligations on the international stage.

That said:

If that were REALLY A SPY PLANE (as in, we didn't know shit about it until after the fact), and we either didn't or couldn't shoot it the fuck right out of the sky before it made it all the way to chicago, I'd be a-scared as all fuck right about now.
