Canadian fighter jets intercept Russian bombers in Arctic
Fighter jets intercepted two Russian bombers flying about 75 kilometres off Canada's Arctic coast recently, NORAD revealed to CBC News. Two CF-18s met the Tupolev Tu-95 long-range bombers, commonly referred to as "Bears," as they flew a course in "the western reaches" of Canada's Air Defence Identification Zone over the Beaufort Sea, said Maj. Beth Smith, spokeswoman for North American Aerospace Defence Command.
