+Slowly stepping away from reality, then? Forgot about this? That was only back in June. More recently the following month too.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Titles of these articles are misleading. Entering ADIZ is nowhere near a violation of US airspace.
USAF and RuAF are buzzing each other within legal limits for decades.
In july this year USAF F-16 went down the ocean in a Russian Pacific defence zone. They haven’t started any shouting about it, just sent a plane to rescue a pilot.
You said flying over Alaska. Penetrating the ADIZ is not our “airspace” in that manner. It is as far as ATC, SAR, etc, and we will send fighters out to see what you are.
But those incidents and interceptions are the norm up there.
These incidents are at least 200 miles from Alaska. On the north end, the ADIZ goes all the way to the 75th latitude line. Look at that if you think we were violated. Look at the immense area north of the Aleutians. ADIZ can get massively far from Alaska there. And again, that area is where we go look at you. Not the same as penetrating our border.
And hystrionics aside, you might spend some time reading about navigation in that part of the world. Lost planes and navigation errors is the norm. It’s better today, but the cold war was filled with terrifying stories of our guys making mistakes that took them into Russia over land.
One U2 pilot heading south realized his mistake when he started hearing Russian language on radio stations he could receive.
