Russian Bear bombers fly along Alaska coast Tuesday

By Clip Syndicate

A big difference between Monday and Tuesday, when another pair of Russain Bear bombers was spotted along the coast of Alaska, is that U.S. forces did not intercept the planes sighted Tuesday. Officials would not comment on the back-to-back nature of the flights, but say it's recently happened anywhere from zero to 15 times in a single year (including the gap from July 4, 2015, until today).
