US nuke bombers & NATO jets conduct war games on Russia’s doorstep in show of strength to Putin.

NATO jets and US nuke bombers have conducted war games on Russia's doorstep in a show of strength to Vladimir Putin.

The United States and 20 NATO nations took part in the large-scale mission, flying over NATO's 30 member states to send a stark warning message to Putin.

Soaring 27,000ft over Scotland at 316mph, new video footage shows a US Air Force B-52 Stratofortress refuelling on a flight from Spain before returning to the mission - named Operation Allied Sky.

The spectacular footage shows an RAF Typhoon taking to the skies over the UK to escort the US aircraft.

During the mission, the bomber completed an aerial refuelling from the KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft based at RAF Mildenhall.

According to Nic Robertson, CNN's International Diplomatic Editor, the mission aimed to show NATO's "credibility of common defence" and "enhanced readiness".

The timely message of military strength comes two weeks ahead of US President Joe Biden's summit with the Russian leader.
