US F-22s Intercept Russian Nuclear Bombers Off the Coast of Alaska

The US military intercepted two Russian bombers in global airspace off Alaska's coast, a Pentagon spokesman has said.

The Russian planes didn't enter US territory.

The last time Russian bombers flew near the USA was July 4, 2015, when a pair of Russian bombers flew off the coasts of Alaska and California, coming as close as 40 miles to Mendocino, Calif.

After the bombers entered the United States' Air Defense Identification Zone, two F-22 stealth fighter jets and a Boeing E-3 Sentry, commonly known as an AWACS, took off from Elmendorf to make an intercept.

It was reported that the Russian TU-95 Bear bombers then returned back to eastern Russia.

This is the first time that Russian aircraft have approached North America in some time.

"We need to attempt to put an end to this steady degradation, which is doing nothing to restore the trust between our two countries or to make progress on the issues of the greatest importance to both of us", Tillerson said. On July 4, 2015, a pair of Russian bombers came within forty miles of the California coast - prompting a similar American response.
