Russian and American strategic bombers make regular flights near the borders of the US and Russia, without entering the airspace of each other. In turn fighters of the two countries make the so-called intercepts of the bombers. Usually such flights take place without incident and are standard practice for military-air forces of the USA and Russia.

Recently, the U.S. air force has deployed to Eilson air force base in Alaska three strategic bomber B-52H "to practice the tasks in the Beaufort sea".
