In the most serious incident of the new cold war so far, a Russian Tupolev 95 Bomber twice over flew the Carrier USS Nimitz and its battle group and at low altitude.
The incident started when 4 of the bombers launched from a Russian airbase and moved towards Japan. Two of the bombers headed south violating Japanese airspace, and the other two headed for the carrier group.
They were intercepted at 50 miles by four F-18s. One of the Russian bombers pulled off and circled the group, the second dropped to 2000 feet and flew over the carrier, then returned for a second pass.
