Russian bombers penetrated U.S. airspace at least 16 times in past 10 days

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/...e-least-16-ti/

Russian strategic nuclear bombers conducted at least 16 incursions into northwestern U.S. air defense identification zones over the past 10 days, an unusually sharp increase in aerial penetrations, according to U.S. defense officials.

The numerous flight encounters by Tu-95 Russian Bear H bombers prompted the scrambling of U.S. jet fighters on several occasions, and come amid heightened U.S.-Russia tensions over Ukraine. Also, during one bomber incursion near Alaska, a Russian intelligence-gathering jet was detected along with the bombers.

No, it doesn't. But it doesn't automatically justify hostilities, either. This is just Cold War II fun (hopefully).

I'm guessing that "U.S. air defense identification zones" does not equal "U.S. airspace."

It is interesting, though.

Our Rivet Joint was in international airspace and they painted it with targeting radar. Basically, they "locked on" to it for a missile shot.

These Bears penetrated our airspace. I wonder if our guys did the same?

I wonder if the Russians even knew that our fighters were there until visual.

How long does it take to get an F22 off the ground and behind a russian bomber? I've always wondered how quickly that occurs.

I belive they have a certain number of aricraft up on patrol at any given time

also, i believe they always have a few aircraft and pilots designated and ready for scramble so they can be up in just a couple of minutes

Kinda depends on the distances!

The article says that our jets scrambled, so these were likely ready aircraft. Figure they were airborne and heading toward the bogeys in a few minutes. With super-cruise on.
