The Russian Air Force and the North American Aerospace Defense Command have conducted their first joint air defense exercise-- a simulated terrorist hijack.
In the exercise, Vigilante Eagle, a US-flagged commercial aircraft on an international flight is seized by terrorists.
Both the Russian air force and a joint US and Canadian command sent fighter aircraft to investigate and follow the plane.
The military officers say they are pleased with the results and will continue to work on overcoming their language barrier.
