Air Force intercepts 2 Russian bombers off Alaska coast

The identification zone extends about 200 miles off the Alaskan coast and is mostly global airspace, Miller said, though Russian military activity will often prompt an in-kind response for US warplanes.

Russian nuclear forces dispatch two strategic bombers into the air defense zone near Alaska on Friday and the aircraft were intercepted by American F-22 jets, the U.S. Northern Command said.

American F-22 fighter jets intercepted two Russian Tu-95 bomber off the coast of Alaska.

According to authorities, the interception occurred in worldwide airspace near the West coast of Alaska North of the Aleutian Islands.

The statement said the Russian jets were "intercepted and monitored" but never entered U.S. airspace.
