US fighter jets have again intercepted Russian warplanes off the coast of Alaska, the fifth such incident in a number of weeks.
The two Russian bombers were flanked by a pair of fighter jets, making the fleet unusually large.
The military planes were flying in international airspace but just 50 miles 80 from the US coast, part of the US air defence zone.
A spy plane later flew into the area was not intercepted.
