Officials: US jets Scrambled To Intercept Russian Bombers Off California, Alaska Coasts On July 4th
While the United States celebrated Independence Day, two pairs of Russian bombers flew off the coast of California and Alaska -- forcing the Air Force to scramble fighter jets to intercept both flights, two senior defense officials tell Fox News.

The first incident occurred at 10:30 a.m. ET on July 4 off the coast of Alaska, Fox News is told. Two U.S. Air Force F-22 jets were scrambled from their base in Alaska to intercept two Tupolev Tu-95 long-range strategic bombers, capable of carrying nuclear weapons.

The second incident occurred at 11:00 a.m. ET also on July 4, off the central coast of California. Two F-15s from an undisclosed location were scrambled to intercept another pair of Tu-95 Bear bombers.

A spokesman for NORAD would not confirm if either pair of bombers was armed.

Surprising they had to actually scramble anything here in AK. These Raptors have been in the air 24/7 for the last month due to an ongoing exercise they have going on here.

Correct these incidents seem to happen at least once a year but probably more often then that.
It does seem pretty disrespectful for them to do it on July 4th though.

The ones in the exercise are unarmed. The interceptors carry live ordinance.

They always are poking around here. There has been an exercise going.However I thought it was Northern Edge but that seems to start on the 15th of this month. It must be called something else.

Snip:

NE15 fills the skiesNorthern Edge 2015 fills the skies
Approximately 200 military aircraft filled the skies above Alaska Monday, signifying the start of the joint training exercise, Northern Edge 2015.

Hosted by Alaskan Command, NE15 brings together approximately 6,000 U.S. military service members in a joint-forces environment to prepare to respond to crises in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.

Some of it started already I guess, because they have been tearing up the sky for a couple of weeks now.

right

Russia has oil or gas out there in those waters off Alaska.

We do the same things to the Palestinians, who have gas or oil off their cost, and wewill not let them harvest it. If they attempt it we murder them.

We are human filth. Pirates. Parasites. Murderers. Destroyers. Enablers for all that is evil against Man (Adamic Man).
