On February 7, 1987, a pair of Su-27s were encountered by a Western aircraft, two Royal Norwegian Air Force F-16s over the Barents Sea, for the first time. On September 13, 1987, a mid-air collision occurred between a Soviet Air Force Su-27 and a Royal Norwegian Air Force P-3 Orion patrol aircraft. The P-3 was intercepted at 10.39hrs by the Su-27, flown by Vasily Tsimbal assigned to the 941st IAP, over international waters, 90km (48nm) from the coast of the USSR during a patrol in an area where Soviet warships were on exercise. To block out the Orion’s reconnaissance equipment the Soviet Su-27 flew beneath its belly. The propeller of the Orion’s outer starboard engine hit the Su-27’s fin. Fortunately, both aircraft returned to their bases.
Central to the Su-27's cockpit is the ILS-31 head-up display; on the right is the IPV tactical situation display, with the navigation device required for international flights above.
