i can't open this at the moment (blocked at work) but I'm going to go out on a limb and say this was likely shot from the KH of some Fencers overflying with a late Hornet intercept on their way back out.

 

photo of the ship later emailed to the CO.............

HAHAHA

 

great file footage of NORAD fighter intercepts in Alaska (note the AK on the F-15 fin flash) dubbed in with soundtrack.

 

:biggrin:

 

nothing unusual about Bears overflying ships. It is in international waters and airspace after all.

 

I got a chuckle out of the reference to the earlier incident with the KH.

Yeah had to chuckle about the F-15. You know, Im not sure but i seem to recall when the US Navy would not allow over-flights of its CV's during the cold war. Something about them being a strategic asset. Id also point out the Navy, unlike in the video, would likely already have escorts for any aircraft within firing range heading towrds the CV.
