The intercepted aircraft, an IL-78 air-to-air refuelling tanker aircraft of the Russian Federation, was heading for Kaliningrad from mainland Russia in international airspace above the Baltic Sea according to a pre-filed flight plan, with its on-board transponder on, and maintaining radio communications.
