Evening Quickie #soldierporn: Rare bird sighting.
Russian Federation Air Force Su-27 Sukhois intercept a simulated hijacked aircraft entering Russian airspace at Exercise Vigilant Eagle (VE) 13. This exercise is the fifth in a series of cooperative exercises that provide an opportunity for Russia, Canada, and United States military personnel to enhance their international partnership and to cooperatively detect, track, identify, and follow a hijacked aircraft as it proceeds across international boundaries.
