RARE COLD WAR HARASSMENT PICTURES - USAF F-8 ESCORT RUSSIAN TU-95 BEAR BOMBER CLOSE TO US AIR CRAFT CARRIER ORISKANY (BOTH US AND RUSSIAN IMAGES)

These two images capture a unique moment in Cold War history – one photograph taken by an American pilot, the other by a Russian. Intercepts like this were common at the time, but even if adversary pilots both had their cameras with them, it is highly unusual that both pictures should finally find their way into the same collection.

The event in question happened on May 25, 1974, when two Vought F-8J Crusader fighters scrambled from the deck of USS Oriskany to intercept a couple of intruding Soviet Tupolev TU-95 Bear-A/B reconnaissance aircraft. Thankfully no missiles were fired that day, but the fact that the events have been captured from the point of view of both American and Russian crews makes it special. In both pictures, the Orisksany can clearly be seen steaming along in the background, reflecting just how close the bombers got!
