Just a day after flying two nuclear-capable bombers within 100 miles of Alaska, the Russians just flew two more nuclear-capable bombers within 36 miles of Alaska, according to Fox News.

The bombers were spotted by the U.S. military. The military sent a single E-3 Sentry to use radar and make sure there were no other planes flying below the bombers. They did not scramble fighter jets to escort them away, like they did on Monday.

On Monday, bomber planes capable of carrying nuclear bombs were spotted 100 miles off the coast of Alaska. The Russian bombers are the first planes to go this close to America since President Trump took office.

In that instance, the U.S. Air Force scrambled fighter jets to escort the bombers away before they were able to fly any closer.

Watch the video below for more information about the Monday incident.
