North American Aerospace Defence (NORAD) Command confirmed two of its F-22 stealth fighters intercepted a pair of Tupolev Tu-95 bombers inside the Alaska Air Defense Identification Zone (AZDIZ) on Monday. A short time later, two additional Tu-95s and two Sukhoi Su-35 fighters were identified and intercepted by two other NORAD F-22s. Following the interceptions, the Russian aircraft remained in international airspace.

General Terrence O’Shaughnessy, commander of NORAD, said: “Our ability to deter and defeat threats to our citizens and vital infrastructure starts with detecting, tracking, and positively identifying aircraft our airspace.

“We are on alert 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.”
