Russian Bombers Used Against U.S. Missile Defense for Fifth Time in Less Than a Year

Russian Bombers Used Against U.S. Missile Defense for Fifth Time in Less Than a Year

On April 28, U.S. F-22s were scrambled and made visual confirmation of Russian bombers in the Alaska Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ). 

The bombers did not enter U.S. airspace, although “the Alaska ADIZ is a formal national security zone used by the military to monitor both civilian and military aircraft,” the Washington Free Beacon notes.

This marks the fifth time in less than a year that Russian bombers have been used in practice runs against U.S. missile defense sites around the world.

In June they were used in Alaska, in July it was Northern California, in February it was Guam, last month it was U.S. bases in Japan, and now Alaska once more.
