The US Air Force conducted exercises in Alaska, in the framework of which they rehearsed a full-scale war with Russia. According to the scenario of the exercise, American fighters were transferred to the airfield of Shemya Island, closest to the Russian border, from which they were supposed to intercept Russian missile carriers and bombers heading for US territory over the Bering Sea.
According to the magazine's military expert David Ax, since May of this year, the American Air Force has been practicing the rapid removal of aircraft from air bases and dispersing them to small airfields in anticipation of a Russian missile strike. For this purpose, numerous trainings are carried out to practice the transfer to small landing sites. The US Air Force Command believes that if dispersed, at least some aircraft will survive and be able to repel the Russians.

Such airfields include Shemya, where the last exercises took place. Among the disadvantages of this airfield, the author named the remoteness from the main territory, constant fogs and storms in the area of the island, and from the advantages - the ideal location for intercepting Russian aircraft over the Bering Sea. The island is located just 322 km from the Russian coast.
