Raptor, meet Bear. Bear, meet Raptor.

A follow-up to this.

The wonderful blog Ares posted a while back about the Thanksgiving Day intercept of Russian Tu-95 Bear bombers up near Alaska. This was notable because the interceptors were Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptors. At the time, no pictures were released of the two types together. Happily for us, although maybe bad for opsec, Ares’s Bill Sweetman links today to shots of the encounter posted at Airshowbuzz.com.
