In Video: Russian Fighter Jets Intercept U.S. B-52H Strategic Bombers Near Crimea, Over Baltic Sea

Donate

On June 18, Russian Su-27 fighter jets intercepted U.S. Air Force B-52H strategic bombers above the Black Sea, near Crimea, and the Baltic Sea.

“The crews of Russian Su-27 fighter jets … have intercepted US Air Force B-52H strategic bombers, that approached Russian state border from the Black and Baltic seas,” the Russian Defense Ministry said.

Over the past years, the US and NATO have dramatically increased its military activities along the Russian border. In 2019, Russia was repeatedly forced to scramble fighter jets to intercept US aircraft, including spy planes, moving towards its borders.

    Ya right ( intercept ) More like observed .

      Nope. That ancient B-52 bomber is huge, lumbering and heavy – whereas, a highly maneuverable Su-27 Flanker can fly circles around it and cross its path at will. That huge old bomber cannot deviate from its flight path with any nimbleness – a few Flanker passes across its nose or engines will send it (slowly) banking away. You are ignorant about basic aviation and warplanes.

        Hey dumbazz the plane stayed its course , loser .

        • Bob

          And what was its exact course, navigator?

          • Toronto Tonto

            Up your azz bob the knob .

          • Bob

            And, with that as your best comeback, it’s case closed.

          Tonto translation = stupid or dumb

    Oh they probably had to change their seat liners after that encounter. Soaked in sweat, or worse.

    If nothing else the Strato-“fortress” got a good test of all it’s alarms and whistles.

    It’s truly unnerving to have Russian radar locked on to you. Just the sound of it drains you. In a real world they would die and never know what hit them.

    One wonders since Russia is so aggressive why we don’t hear stories of the US interdicting Russian bombers near US territory?

    Too busy defending itself against real aggression.

      Frankly I think your stupid .

      • frankly

        Your use of the word your proves vice versa. Go ahead and edit, it will be our little secret.

        Kind of like the MSM and the US dollar, all you have to do is think it and it’s true, eh? A fiat opinion, if you will it, it is.

        My life experience includes a few eye opening actual events. In rooms you don’t get into so easily as turning on your boob tube. That accounts for my skepticism plus not having a TV in my house for over 20 years.

        I doubt your personal history would allow you to get into the military, never mind pass a security investigation for a clearance. Your handle implies fatness, have fun with that.

          He is Ukrainian. The only pass he can get is the one to clear WC. Just kidding.

          Your handy handle implies stupidity , So frankly I hope you enjoy your troll pay and buy a tv .

          • frankly

            Not fucking likely!

        • occupybacon

          I was almost to say props for not having a TV but thinking twice, I think it could help someone like you to hear stories of the US interdicting Russian bombers near US territory, or UK, Norway, Poland, Lithuania, Romania, Bulgaria territories…

          • frankly

            You didn’t understand my reply I hate repeating. I don’t need to hear them when I can tell them, duh.

    • Sinbad2

      It’s about money, Russia aggravates the USA by simply existing, so the US spends lots of borrowed money to threaten Russia.
      In the long run its a good thing, eventually the US will default on its debt.

  • Rob

    MOSCOW SAYS RESULT OF UPCOMING RUSSIAN-US-ISRAELI MEETING IN JERUSALEM COULD STABILIZE SYRIA. LOL.

  • Toronto Tonto

    The trial for Russia downing MH17 starts march 9 2020 , 4 suspects named so far more to come soon .

  • World_Eye

    Motherfucking provocators when they do it on Russian borders it’s all cool, and even if you intercept them you are breaking the norms of international waters, motherfuckers. What will be like if Russia flies Tu-160s across Florida or California ah? How you will call that, RUSSIA Invades and has no right?

  • Sinbad2

    The US does practice bomb runs against North Korea every year.
    The US likes practicing nuclear attacks.
    The victims of these American terror campaigns never know if this time it’s for real.
    When planes fly at the American military, even civilian planes, the Americans panic and shoot them down.

    the USA is a paper tiger—they will only confront weak defenseless nations—and even then they usually lose
