Canada Jets Turn Back Russian Aircraft in the Arctic

Canada Jets Turn Back Russian Aircraft in the Arctic 25 Aug 2010 Canadian air force jets turned back two Russian bombers close to Canada’s northern border yesterday, Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s office said in a statement. The encounter with the Tupolev TU-95 bombers underscores the need for Canada to buy F-35 fighter jets, Harper’s spokesman, Dimitri Soudas, said. Defence Minister Peter MacKay said last month Canada will spend about C$9 billion ($8.5 billion) to buy 65 Joint Strike Fighter jets from Lockheed Martin Corp. to replace its CF-18 planes.
