FOREIGN POLICY/MILITARY/NATIONAL SECURITY/RUSSIA: “Russian military aircraft were spotted flying off the coast of Alaska for the fourth time in as many days, a US defense official told CNN on Friday [4-21-17].
The two most recent sightings occurred late Wednesday and on Thursday, with the first involving two IL-38 maritime patrol aircraft and the second involving two Tu-95 nuclear-capable Bear bombers.
Russian aircraft never entered US airspace and it is unknown at this time whether the US Air Force scrambled any aircraft in response to either occurrence.”
