Russia bombers off Alaska intercepted by U.S. fighter jets

Russian bombers flew near Alaska, intercepted by Air Force jets, US military says

Two US F-22 "Raptor" fighter jets intercepted two Russian TU-ninety five bombers on Tuesday, per an announcement launched by North American Aerospace Protection Portray.The Russian bombers "intercepted west of mainland Alaska had been accompanied by two Russian SU-35 "Flanker" fighter jets", NORAD talked about in an announcement issued Wednesday.

The American jets shadowed the Russian aircraft for approximately 40 minutes, according to NBC News, but the foreign aircraft never officially entered American airspace, remaining instead in the U.S. Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ).

It's the second time this month a pair of Russian bombers flew near Alaska. The Russian planes did not enter sovereign USA airspace on either of the previous two occasions.

A United States official previously told CNN that the military sees these flights as routine and said they pose no concern. However, during that earlier intercept, the Russian Tu-95s were not escorted by Russian fighter jets. The zone extends about 200 miles off the Alaskan coast, and is mostly in global airspace.

On May 11, USA jets shadowed a pair of Tu-95s as they flew in the zone, which extends 200 miles from the coast, in the Bering Sea north of the Aleutians.
