Russian Bombers Fly Within 50 Miles of California Coast

Photo Credit: APFour Russian strategic bombers triggered U.S. air defense systems while conducting practice bombing runs near Alaska this week, with two of the Tu-95 Bear H aircraft coming within 50 miles of the California coast, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (Norad) confirmed Wednesday.

“The last time we saw anything similar was two years ago on the Fourth of July,” Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Norad spokesman, told the Free Beacon.

Davis said the latest Bear H incursions began Monday around 4:30 p.m. Pacific time when radar detected the four turbo-prop powered bombers approaching the U.S. air defense zone near the far western Aleutian Islands.

Two U.S. Air Force F-22 jets were scrambled and intercepted the bombers over the Aleutians.

After tracking the bombers as they flew eastward, two of the four Bears turned around and headed west toward the Russian Far East. The bombers are believed to be based at the Russian strategic base near Anadyr, Russia.

    Why did they stop them? ~smile~ Pelosi’s hose sounds like a good target. Also not far from Neveda and could practice on Reeds house.

      Mike, what a great idea. (not smiling) I agree. Peace,

    Hell even the Russians don’t want anything to do with Pelosi. You have to remember there are some things that even a Pig won’t associate with.

    Putin does not seem like a saber rattler. He is a serious Russian patriot warrior who knows that USA is being destroyed from within and knows how to finish the job. Remember WWII? Isaiah 9:10 Peace,

    Like we should be worried if the Russians took over Californicate….. Yeah right. That state has turned Commie all by itself; needing no help from Putin. (might become a nice ‘new Resort’ for Putin though). In this way, you can think of this breach as being in reality “A Commie Victory Day Salutatory Fly-over”.

    I think it is because B.O. is such a strong, and masculine leader…………not. Nobody would’ve ever dared to do this when Ronald Reagan was in office.

    And 50 miles off the coast is worse than the dictator on Pennsylvania Ave?
