Talk about tailgating.

In a video that has made the rounds in the past few weeks, crew of a Russian transport plane released their cargo seconds before a fighter jet appears outside, just feet from the open ramp.

The Russian government-connected news website RT identifies the figher jet as a Su-30SM and the transport plane as “probably an Il-76.”

Is the video real? RT seems to think so, saying that indications show that the “stunt was planned.”

Given that, was the stunt brave or just dangerous and stupid?

You can be the judge.
