Russia Blamed for Mystery Launch of Three Missile-Armed F-22s Off Hawaii

Russia’s Pacific Fleet kicked off large-scale manoeuvres last week involving 20 warships, submarines, and support vessels, as well as aircraft, with the exercises seeing ships sailing up to 4,000 km from their home bases and standard operating areas.

The presence of Russian Navy vessels 500-800 km west of Hawaii are the reason why three missile-armed Hawaii Air National Guard F-22 fighter jets were scrambled on Sunday for an “irregular air patrol,” CBS News has reported, citing US defence officials.

The officials, who were not named, said Russian aircraft did not enter Hawaii’s Air Defence Identification Zone (ADIZ), and were not intercepted.

CBS’s sources also indicated that the USS Vinson-led carrier strike group engaged in drills east of Hawaii was moved closer to the islands in response to the Russian exercises.
