    Avweek reports that the F-22 performed the first Russian Tu-95 intercepts from Elmendorf. No pics of the Tu-95 were released from the late Dec 2007 intercept, but there are pics of the F-22s on the sortie with underwing tanks. That was a first for me personally.

    Sweet! History in the making . . . .

    I knew AK was getting the Raptor, but I didn't realise they were already operational.
