Russian bombers fly near Alaska; Air Force scrambles jets

Fox News reports two F-22 Raptor jets intercepted the Russian TU-95 "Bear" bombers on Monday.

A senior-level United States official told Fox News about a unique incident in which two Russian bombers infiltrated U.S. air space in Alaska.

According to Fox News, F-22s escorted Russian bombers in flight for about 12 minutes and after that Tu-95 made an U-turn and flew back.

Trump signs boy's hat then throws it into the crowd US President Donald Trump has added a fresh gaffe to his list after he was filmed offering to a sign a young fan's hat before throwing into a crowd and laughing.

Russian military planes routinely fly in global air space off the U.S coastal borders, as well as other countries' boundaries, according to Wilsbach.

Republican Adam Kinzinger, a representative from IL, told CNN that the Russians were "trying to show their teeth", as relations between the two countries is now strained.

On that date, two Russian bombers flew as close as 40 miles from the Californian coast.

Former South Korean President Indicted For Bribery
Park and Choi are accused of receiving $68 million , with about half of that money coming from Samsung . Prosecutors said Monday that they have indicted Lotte Group Chairman Shin Dong-bin on bribery charges.

Like yesterday's provocation, the bombers launched from airbases in eastern Russian Federation, flying over the Pacific Ocean into the Alaskan Air Defense Zone.

This comes as Russian Federation says they can disable the entire U.S. Navy in one fell swoop using powerful electronic signal jamming.

Last week in Moscow, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said U.S. This is the first intercept since 2015, he said.

Monday's incident marked the first time in nearly two years since Russian bombers last came so close to the American coast.

That episode involved Russian long-range bombers and included cockpit-to-cockpit communication in which the Russian pilots relayed a message to the Americans: "Good morning, American pilots".

Its voyages are the latest in an alarming string of incidents involving the Russian military.
