Russian Fighter jets radar locks on a B-52 bomber flying above Syria. The Russian military has released footage of a US B-52 Stratofortress heavy long-range bomber flying above Syria.
An Instagram account claiming to be of a Russian pilot of a fighter jet posted a picture purportedly of a US B-52 Stratofortress heavy long-range bomber flying above Syria.
The released photo shows B-52 Stratofortress returning after concluding operations against the ISIS terror group and flying over Syria. No further information has been made available regarding the date or place of this photo.
Two weeks ago a photograph posted by the same unofficial Russian’s military pilot Instagram account on 24 September confirmed an intercept of the U.S. F-22 Raptor Raptor combat aircraft by the Russian Su-35S fighter jet.
The author of the post claimed to have spotted the F-22 in flight through an infrared search and track (IRST) system of the Russian Su-35 fighter jet.

Previously, it was reported that B-52 bombers have been deployed in the Middle East region, along with more than 400 airmen, to the air campaign in Syria and Iraq against the ISIS terror group.
But in April 2018 was reported that the final squadrons of B-52 Stratofortresses have returned home to the Minor Air Force Base in North Dakota after completing extensive military operations in the fight against ISIS in the Middle East and targeting the Assad regime.
