Maybe he's not a gunner anymore, but a reconnaissance operator. Or maybe he's the slowest member of the crew and thinks he's so cool. Maybe his job is to look at intercepting fighter pilots and give them the funny looks, so he can go see it on television or the internet later and have a laugh. Maybe he's in charge of secretly spreading the weather control chemicals that Russia will use when they attack North America and Europe. Maybe he's the ESP mind control guru whose job is to find out how to make fighter pilots go insane and the guns are actually psychic wave concentrators. Maybe... no, I've got to stop this.

I remember holding a penthouse up over my window while being 'escorted' back in the day.

Hey, do any of our Russian members have photos of them escorting US planes?

I want to see if my was saved for posterity...

Very neat especially the black and whit photos. The one I'm surprised by the one with the TU-95 Bear being intercepted by an A-6 Intruder. All in all very cool photos.

And here is the video footage.

I once saw an RAF Red Arrows Hawk clip the pennant on the top of a yacht mast while doing a low level inverted crossover manoeuvre at Weymouth, Dorset, England. The pennant and the small 'stick' it was on were ripped off, but thankfully the pilot and aircraft survived the hit.

How did that turn out? Did the Soviets blame the US? Did they claim nothing happened?

I've actually seen the Russians do that sort of thing. It was 2 Tu 16 in the Sea of Japan and they flew by us (USS Enterprise) several times below flight deck level with two F-14's glued to their tails...

The trick was to always have one of our aircraft in the pic with the EA. If we are in the pic it also means we could have shot the SOB down.

I remember when my high school Aerospace class toured a P-3 Orion stopping through. The sailors on the flight crew mentioned that they would drop Playboys on the decks of Soviet ships through the manual sonabouy tube.
