What a circus.

verner

nah it’s ominous, it seems the more than usual moronic twats in the white house/pentagon can’t find any way out of the debt-situation than to start a war. they are at their wits end and I suppose it isn’t much with to write home about – after all they tend to be under-educated and obese (prime example fatso pompeo) – and as we know by now, they could hardly find their way out of a wet paper bag..

Why so butthurt over such a small thing that happens since before you was born?

Anduin Lothar

Thats B1B Lancer, not B52, and its Black Sea, not Baltic…

verner

over the black sea sure but possibly a b52 over the baltics.

Anduin Lothar

Translation from title of the video, Russian fighter jets intercepts and escort B1B over Black sea, u can clearly see Su 27 and tell that it is Su 27 not some other Flanker variant by air break on the spine of the aircraft, the other 1 is B1B…

Some times I think the readers of this publication like its topic more than the writers as in MSM.

Anduin Lothar

Other video shows some versions of Flankers intercepting P3C Orion

Dick Von Dast'Ard

And a RAF Sentinel R1.

Harry Smith

And photos of SU-27 are with snow while it’s summer in the region.

Anduin Lothar

Summer is on entire northren hemisphere, that includes Russia, well spring to be more precise…

Harry Smith

Come on it’s around +25 Celsius and sunny in the region.

Anduin Lothar

It’s over +20 in most of the Europe. :p

Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

Its not snow, its clouds.

i thought the same as you until i watched the other video! there is a B-52 there as well.

The first video is a montage of several intercepts (apparently all over the Baltic):
1st intercept (up to 0:14): USAF B-52H
2nd intercept(0:14 to 0:33): German Navy P-3 Orion
3rd intercept(0:33 to end): Raytheon Sentinel – appears to be British RAF

The second video, showing an intercept of a B1B, was over the black sea, as also stated in the article.

Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

First plane in top video is B-52, plane in lower video is B-1B.
Tell me how you, without seeing the terrrain, can determine if its the Baltic or the Black Sea?

Anduin Lothar

I’m multilingual, Russian is one of the languages i speak, title of the second yt video is on Russian, posted by media arm of Russian defense ministry, Telekanal Zvezda, full translation of the name of the video u can see down in comments, Черным морем – Black Sea…

Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

Thank you for the translation.
The first video is from the Baltic and the lower one is from the Black Sea then?

Lone Ranger

Good job Comrades.
Valiant Russian Aerospace pilots helped poor lost Amercant pilots find their way home.
Safe trip guys.
Brings tears to my eye…

Zionism = EVIL

Russia really needs to act like China and Iran and whack a few Americunt arsehole cowards. The Chinese PLA today in NEFA at a height of 18,000 put to flight a whole Indian battalion who fled dropping their weapons.

Three Indian soldiers, including an officer have died in a skirmish along the border with China, New Delhi has said. Beijing claims that the incident occurred after Indian forces crossed the border and fired on Chinese troops, however no PLA troops appear to be suffered any casualties and the Indians withdrew back to their side of the undemarcated border, claimed by both sides.

We have the right to fly with our US strategic bombers full loaded in International waterways of free navigation, as we have the legal right to defend ourselves.

sheeple

like the Rus, they can also fly whereevery they want. It only happens so far that this was accedatially close to an US Bomber. So what?

cechas vodobenikov

we do frequently —we know you are cowards

Dick Von Dast'Ard

Already an F-15C frightened out of the sky in the NATO exercise.

kenpachi

now we can shoot one of ours own down and blame Russia after that sweet paint job. I don’t think they would go that far. probably bomb a school and blame RF instead

Lone Ranger

They already did that a few years back in Syria.

Justin

Awesome footage! to see a B1-B with a Russian SU-27
Totally insane! im saving this video to my hard drive

cechas vodobenikov

Russian pilots are tasked with instructing these incompetents how to navigate; despite frequent official complaints by then NATO Austrian govt, US f16’s routinely violate their airspace—of course they will not do this w North Korea, Iran, China, Russia…cowards only bully small weaker nations
