Russian Fighter Jet Intercepts American B-52 Stratofortress

The Russian pilot of an Su-35 Flanker fighter jet recorded the interception of a US B-52H Stratofortress bomber on Mar. 20, 2023 over the Baltic Sea.


The Russian jet accompanied the American bomber to Estonian air space before breaking off. The B-52 reportedly had a NATO escort of Polish F-16s shortly before the intercept, but they had deviated prior to the Russian aircraft's arrival.
