    Show us those interception pictures!

    Hi fellows!

    I've seen alot of various pictures showing interceptions of (atleast in my case) Soviet/Russian patrol planes.
    I've figured out I should start a thread where everyone could post pictures from their collection.

    I'll go first:

    RNoAF F-16A intercepting a Soviet Tu-22M2 Backfire-B:



    USN F-4 intercepting a Soviet Tu-95RT Bear-D:



    USAF F-15C intercepting a Soviet Tu-142M Bear-F:



    USN F/A-18 intercepting a Soviet Tu-95U Bear-E:



    USN F-14 intercepting a Soviet Tu-95KM Bear-C:




    Now, go ahead! Post your pics!

    PS: It doesnt have to be of Soviet aircraft beeing intercepted, it just that thats what I have on my computer...

                what about some soviet interceptors intercepting NATO aircraft...

                although not strictly interceptions....these look good enyway....a sight unthinkable not so long ago.....

                      Fairford 1993 if memory serves. I went on the Saturday and the Bear didn't fly (Rumour was that the crew was too pissed). Aircraft flew as part of the display on the Sunday.

                      Nope, Russians / Soviets had more sense than to ever do over flights. (it was much simpler, safer and cheaper to let a KGB spy in the government to do the work for them).

                            I agree......though I could be biased. The F-4 looks great in the interception/escort role and in flight in general.

                            More F-4 interception pics!

                            Maybe some F-5 pics if anyone has them as well......

                            Anyone notice the "joint" USAF F-4/RAF F-4 intercept picture? I didn't know joint intercepts were ever made? Did those USAF Phantoms come out of Lakenheath?

                              Old rare colour shot of a soviet Mig-17 Fresco, intercepting Boeing 707/C-135.

                              USAF F-15 intercepting a rarely seen Tupolev Bear submarine comunications relay aircraft.

                                Another small correction, is a Tu-95MS "BEAR-H" bomber. This photo appeared in the 1987 edition of "Soviet Military Power", i think.

                                  Not quite sure what happened here. An ex-Yugoslav Air force F-86 flying alongside Il-18.

                                    Sorry it seems a Dc-4/Dc-6 series aircraft. Il-18 engines configuration are different.

                                      Nope,looks like F-4Cs from the 57th Fighter Interceptor Squadron, Keflavik, Iceland.My guess is they were doing a switch off from the RAF Phantom and taking over the intercept.

                                        Woops,exactly.My mistake.It is a DC-6 indeed. Il-18 has a different cockpit layout anyways.

                                        Still,i dont know why an F-86 would intercept a civil airlines from the same country.
