Four Russian strategic bombers complete patrol in Far East


RIA Novosti - by Ivan Rudnev -- 18:23 16/09/2010


Four Russian Tu-95MS Bear H strategic bombers have successfully completed an air-patrol mission in Russia's Far East, a Defense Ministry spokesman said on Thursday. The mission, spanning neutral water areas in the Sea of Japan, the Pacific and the Arctic Ocean, lasted around 14 hours, Vladimir Drik said.


He did not specify whether the planes flew in formation or separately.


The mission included midair refueling and flying over featureless terrain where the pilots were completely reliant on the planes' instruments.
