Gather reports that an Iranian Navy Fokker F27 turboprop reconnaissance plane hovered dangerously close to a US Navy ship for 20-minutes on April 21st. This incident apparently “has been kept on the down low from the American public” for safety reasons. Video after the break.

The Iranian aircraft came just too close for comfort for U.S. and military officials to the Dwight D. Eisenhower ship. It was within 1,000 yards of the naval ship!
