  1. Media is making a big deal out of a couple of Tu-95 Bear bombers flying off the coast of Alaska. They, undoubtedly were testing when our radar picked them up, just as we have and do to their air defenses. This has been going on since the Cold War. As was shown in the photos, several pair of F-22 fighters intercepted them and escorted them. The Bears stayed in international airspace the whole time. One false move and the -22's would have been all over them! This reminds me of the photo that the Denver Post published on the front page, a number of years ago, when some Bears flew down our East Coast, escorted by IIRC, F-4's. The photo, taken by the backseater in the F-4, shows the Russian tail gunner with his hand upraised with the back of the hand showing, and the index and middle finger spread. The caption read, "Russian tail gunner flashes a "V-for-victory sign" to our pilots". Except that "V-for-victory" is done with the palm outward. What the gunner was flashing was the European equivalent of the mighty "bird"!
