Bill Gertz: Russia Conducts Nuclear Bomber Flight Near Alaska

Two Bear H bombers intrude into air defense zone

Two Russian nuclear-capable bombers intruded into the U.S. air defense zone near Alaska last week in the latest saber rattling by Moscow, defense officials said.

The Tu-95 Bear H bombers flew into the Alaska zone on April 22. But unlike most earlier incursions, no U.S. interceptor jets were dispatched to shadow them, said defense officials familiar with the latest U.S.-Russian aerial encounter.

WNU Editor: What I find interesting about this story is that no U.S. Air Force jets were sent to intercept them.
