As Americans were celebrating the Fourth of July holiday, four Russian long-range bomber aircraft flew close enough to the US shores that they were intercepted by military fighter jets. The first set of two bombers flew near Alaska and just 30 minutes later a separate set flew far off the west coast of California.

Davis said the Russian planes were entirely within their rights during the flight.

While intercepts of Russian aircraft off Alaska occur frequently, intercepts off California are less common.
