Footage released by the Russian Ministry of Defence on Thursday shows US Air Force’s nuclear capable bomber B-52H Stratofortress over international waters of the Baltic Sea.

According to the ministry, Russian airspace control detected the bomber at a considerable distance from the Russian border, and sent a pair of Su-27 fighter jets to identify and escort the US aircraft.

After being trailed by the Su-27s, the B-52H changed direction and left the area.

According to a statement by the US Air Force, six B-52 bombers have been recently deployed to Europe to take part in training missions across the continent.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Russians should consider a navy+air-base in Cuba or Venezuela and having naval drills 50 nms from Norfolk and San-Dieo with spyplanes flying just out of US territorial waters near Washington and Norfolk 😉
