1. Actually, there have always been Russian bombers flying

off the Alaska Coast. That's been going on for decades. Our fighter planes use them as training tools.

All over international territory. The USA does the same thing.

It's a game.

2. As I recall, Russian bombers approaching US airspace is fairly routine

Getting close to and escorting a Tupolev Tu-95 bombers, and looking at its wicked cool contra-rotating propellers must be a kick in the pants for a US pilot, even if there is a bit of pucker power going on.
