Hijack Exercise-6

A photo made Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2013, shows Col. Patrick Carpentier, deputy commander of the NORAD Alaska Region, on a plane that was hijacked during a simulation to test the response of NORAD and Russian Federation forces near Alaska. The exercise involved jets from Canadian and U.S. forces from NORAD, along with the Russian Federation jets, and saw the Canadians successfully hand off the hijacked plane to Russian fighters over the Bering Strait.
