NORAD Cooperation - by Peter Robichaud
On April 28 1987, CF-18s from 425 Squadron, based in Bagotville Quebec but staging out of Gander Newfoundland, intercepted a Soviet TU-142 Bear F MOD 3. Once the target was identified and escorted out of the CADIZ, it was then handed off to their USAF partners - in this case - USAF F-15 from the 5th FIS staging out of Loring AFB Maine.
It is based on the only known photo of the NORAD partners together with their target.
