Hijack Exercise

This photo made Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2013, over the Bering Strait near Alaska shows three Russian Federation Air Force SU-27s intercepting a passenger plane that was hijacked during a simulation to test the response of NORAD and Russian Federation forces. The exercise among Canadian and U.S. forces from NORAD, along with the Russian Federation, saw the Canadians successfully hand off the hijacked plane to Russian fighters over the Bering Strait.
