  • Twice in 2 days Russian warplanes intercepted off coast of Alaska

One, released on Wednesday, said: "Two Tu-95MS strategic missile carriers of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out planned flights in the airspace over the neutral waters of the Chukotka, Bering and Okhotsk seas, as well as along the western coast of Alaska".

Four F-22's intercepted four Tupolev Tu-95 bombers and two Su-35 fighters that had entered the Alaskan Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) on May 20, 2019.

The zone extends approximately 200 miles off Alaska's western coast and is design to protect America from deadly strikes.

Specifically, two Russian bombers entered the ADIZ and were intercepted by two F-22s while an E-3 provided overall command and control.

The Russian Tu-95 bomber could easily strike key U.S. targets and population centres, with a speed of 441mph and un-fuelled range of 4,970miles. "The bombers entered the ADIZ and were intercepted by two F-22s, exited and then re-entered the Alaskan ADIZ accompanied by two Su-35 fighter jets", according to a NORAD statement.

NORAD said, "This is the fourth and fifth intercepts this year and the second day in a row that Russian bombers have flown into the Alaskan ADIZ".

It followed a similar incident on Monday.

Russian military aircraft that cross through the ADIZ on a training mission are typically allowed to continue on once identified, as long as they do not attempt to enter US airspace.

"At certain stages of the route, Russian aircraft were escorted by #F22 fighter jets of the #USAF".

According to the statement the Russian flight took 11 hours.

'Our ability to deter and defeat threats to our citizens and vital infrastructure starts with detecting, tracking, and positively identifying aircraft our airspace, ' said General Terrence J. Tensions between Russian Federation and the USA have surged in recent years over Syria, Venezuela and Ukraine.

There is also anger in Washington over continued allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
