Air Force F-22 stealth fighter jets intercepted two Russian nuclear-capable bombers Friday morning off the coast of Alaska, a spokesman for NORAD (North American Aeorospace Defense Command) told Fox News.

The Chilly Conflict-era Russian bombers, which date to the 1950s, have been intercepted by U.S. Air Drive F-22 stealth fighter jets round 10 a.m. EDT. Information publication The Washington Free Beacon has published information about what Russian bombers model Tu-95 in the area under the control of NORAD, which took the complete identification of aircraft.

The jets never entered US airspace, according to the report, and turned back after passing the Aleutian Islands.
