  • F-14 TOMCAT ESCORTS RUSSIAN TU-142 SPY PLANE

    BROUGHT TO US BY J. FRY - GREAT SHOT!

    "Picture taken February 1989 in the Phillipine Sea and courtesy of the USS Nimitz Sighting Team. Shot of a Russian TU-142 Bear F spy plane being escorted by American F-14 Tomcat. Still being Cold War era, long range Russian surveillance aircraft would often keep tabs on American naval movements, especially aircraft carriers battle groups, operating in the Indian Ocean, South China Sea, etc... Spotting the Russian spy planes inbound, the carriers would launch fighter escorts to make sure the Russians weren't getting too close and to basically keep an eye on them. These planes were at 2000 ft. and guaranteed the Russians were busy snapping pics of us at the same time as well as the Tomcat to show folks back home."
