Journalists analyzed the history of aircraft flights over the Baltic Sea and found out that on the day of the explosion of the Nord Stream gas pipeline, an American reconnaissance aircraft circled over the emergency site.

As the telegram channel reports, "Before anyone else. Well, almost", a US military aircraft P-8A Poseidon, presumably, observed the results of the explosion on the "Northern Streams" in the Baltic Sea on the morning of September 26.

The observers came to such conclusions based on the analysis of the preserved data of the air travel tracking service Flightradar24.

"The plane arrived from the Atlantic, after which, passing over Denmark, it flew to the island of Bornholm", - the report says.

After refueling over the territory of Poland from the KS-135R tanker aircraft, the American reconnaissance aircraft returned to Bornholm and made a full circle exactly over the area of the explosion.

After that, he descended, and then went to the right of the scene and turned off the transponder, disappearing from the radar.

This information may be significant in conducting an international investigation related to the study of the circumstances of the sabotage on the "Northern Streams". Recall that on September 26, 2022, a powerful gas leak occurred in the Nord Stream and Nord Stream-2 pipelines built by Russia to pump energy carriers to the EU along the bottom of the Baltic Sea. The survey showed that the pipelines were blown up.

So far, no government has claimed responsibility for the attack. But on February 8, an article by Pulitzer Prize winner Seymour Hersh "How America Took Out The Nord Stream Pipeline" was published on the Substack platform with a version about the causes and mechanisms of undermining Russian gas pipelines.

The author believes that the C-4 explosives under the gas pipelines during the June NATO exercises Baltops 22 were laid by American military divers under the cover of the Norwegian authorities. And then, in order to divert suspicion from itself, the Pentagon organized a series of explosions with a time lag of three months. According to the investigator, it was possible to activate pre-laid explosive devices with the help of aviation.

Hersh is convinced that the hydroacoustic buoy, which dropped a Norwegian Navy plane on September 26, contributed to the activation of underwater bombs laid on pipelines.

US authorities and Norway denied its involvement in the bombings after the revelations appeared. At the same time, the Kremlin demanded an international investigation of the incident.
