The US Air Force flew two F-22 stealth fighter planes and an E-3 early warning jet near the state of Alaska after two Russian strategic bombers were seen about 100 miles from Kodiak Island, Fox News said on Tuesday.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The Russian Tu-95 airplanes appeared approximately 280 miles away from the US Air Defense Identification Zone on Monday night, Fox News reported.

The Russian nuclear-capable bombers reportedly turned around after the US planes flew nearby for 12 minutes.

In 2015, US military officials claimed that Russian aircraft entered US airspace near the states of Alaska and California.
