9/11 anniversary: Russian bombers intercepted near Alaska by United States fighter jets

The news and stories that matter, delivered weekday mornings.

US Air Force F-22 stealth fighters intercepted two Russian strategic bombers escorted by two fighter jets near Alaska on Tuesday, marking the second time Russia has done so in a month.

A group of Russian nuclear-capable aircraft ventured near Alaska on september 11 before being intercepted by U.S. Air Force jets.

They did not fly into US or Canadian airspace. It said the intercept happened at 10 p.m. ET.

The bombers were "intercepted west of mainland Alaska were accompanied by two Russian SU-35 "Flanker" fighter jets", the statement reads, according to network. Russian state media said the American jets escorted its aircraft for around 40 minutes and never came closer than 100 meters, according to Reuters. The zone extends about 200 miles off the Alaskan coast, and is mostly in worldwide airspace.

However, we'd already written about the Galaxy Note9 , Galaxy Watch, and Galaxy Tab S4 with S Pen and DeX. So maybe Samsung's mysterious invite is referring to a plethora of cameras, or maybe not.

Spanish and NATO Air Force Lieutenant General Ruben Garcia Servery said: "We have seen aircraft coming to our borders without flight plans, without any kind of controls".

Later in the statement, Putin said he thought the games successfully demonstrated Russia's ability to "deflect potential military threats". "The identification and monitoring of aircraft entering a US or Canadian Air Defense identification Zone demonstrates how NORAD executes its aerospace warning and aerospace control missions for the United States and Canada".

The U.S. was the first to declare an ADIZ in the 1950s and around 20 other countries have since followed suit. On Sept. 1, the bombers were intercepted by F-22 fighters after crossing into the Alaskan Air Defense Identification Zone south of the Aleutian Islands.

It is unclear if the aircraft in the video are the same ones that were intercepted near Alaska.
