The Russians are up to more than just laying claim to the North Pole. Recently, their long range bomber crews have resumed flying sorties over American installations in Guam, a similar practice to those once conducted during the Cold War. Flying for thirteen hours to reach their destination, the Tu-95 heavy bombers, capable of launching a nuclear strike, represent a return of Russian military displays demonstrating global reach. Major General Pavel Androsov, head of Russian long range aviation says, "I think the result was good. We met our colleagues – fighter jet pilots from (US) aircraft carriers. We exchanged smiles and returned home."
