Russian bombers: 'Good morning, American pilots

Recommended Posts


It would be nicer if the Russians offered to land and participate in a few airshows... and then the next year the USAF & USN sent a few aircraft over.  All in the name of good relations!

Media reading too much of their own hype...? We do it to Russia so whats the difference...they know they are there and  probably as soon as they left home airbase......maybe its just as its been said...they are actually saying hello...maybe people reading too much into it....Putin maybe unliked though doubt even he wants his family vapourised

All this illustrates is the level of ignorance in modern society. Fifty-year-old Russian bombers make routine approach to US coastline, just like we do to theirs? Shock horror! 

It’s like the British press breathlessly announcing stuff like “the RAF intercepted 5-6 Russian planes approaching Britain last year”. During the Cold War we intercepted 2-3/week.. 

As for the quoted “greeting”? Just normal aircrew-aircrew banter, nothing more.

Oh for christs sake, this shit happens nearly every day, the pilot/aircrew of the Bear  were bantering , trust the press to sensationalize the whole fucking thing, "potentially destabilise" the situation ? They and we have been potentially destabalising the situation since 1946 by doing flybys every day, it was just another day in the office for  the aircrews on both sides, and the Russians were displaying the usual sense of humour practiced by Aircrews globally. The press just want to make a mountain out of a molehill, and in fact they are more likely to destabilise the situation, by knee jerk, piss poor , purile , reporting.....and as for this jerk offs screen, with all the press tabs....I mean, really ?........Oh and Happy Traitors day to all my American friends on here, have a great day chaps and chapess'es
