Air Force intercepts 2 Russian bombers off Alaska coast

U.S. F-22 stealth fighters intercepted two bombers off the coast of Alaska on Friday, according to the North American Aerospace Defense Command.

Tu-95 were in the zone of identification of air defense.

Russian bombers TU-95 and TU-142 remained under escort of two F-22 fighters in an global airspace for 40 minutes, the Russian news agency RIA reported, citing the Russian Defense Ministry. The latest bomber incursion reportedly seems to be part of a pattern of Russian nuclear coercion aimed at the United States.

Russia's state-run news agency TASS said the USA jets did not come within "100 metres" of the Russian aircraft.

That much information was revealed in a statement issued to CNN by North American Aerospace Defense Command spokesman Canadian Army Major Andrew Hennessey.

Two U.S. fighter jets intercepted two Russian bombers in worldwide airspace off the coast of Alaska on Friday, in the latest in a series of encounters between U.S. and Russian warplanes.

The intercept was first reported by the Washington Free Beacon.

Earlier this month, a Russian fighter jet buzzed a U.S. Navy reconnaissance aircraft within the Baltic Sea.

The last time Russian bombers flew so close to Alaska was May 3, 2017, officials told Fox News.
