This is really cool - I'm happy to see us working with our Russian neighbors. For all of the nay-sayers out there, what would you rather have? More blind hatred and conflict? I will bet anything that if you asked the Russian and American soldiers working together that they would say none of that exists. They're professionals and in many cases, become friends. Let's learn from their example.
Issues like terrorism, especially on aircraft and boats, are international. I've always said that Russia and the US could work together.
Why would Evil Empire "partner" with failed/failing state?

To Sierra Nevada; With all due respect sir, I im sorry about your loss! I am not Russian- I am from West...True fact is (it was shown on TV in Australia some years ago and also is a well known fact from history) that Russian pilots and not soldiers on ground (China soldiers fight Usa and all the rest of the world there) did endeed face your pilots.... In the film was Few Russian pilots(include one which I mentioned) who openly tall about their duty in this war. Also, few Usa pilots(4 of them on film), who survive all of this where talking about almost 40 years of protest and letters send to Usa governments and presidents to find out what really happend to all of this prisoners but goverment never do anything about that! Film did show Usa pilots, protesting in front of white house about this issue...To add on all of this, A Usa general(McNamara I think) and hero from WW2 said that he will drop nuc.bombs on China in public but Rusvelt (after talk with Russia) remove him from post and come on TV to say Usa citizens that Usa do not wish to have nuclear war with Russia so he have to remove general! Rusvelt speach was shown to!Just resently I read in Usa news (really can not remember what was name)that some private colector from Usa try to sale one MIG 15 and most of story about fighting in Korea also come out....It's true S.Nevada-your pilots fight Russian pilots ower Korea becouse China(got problems on land becouse Usa air attacks) ask Russia to help them out and they did. Please, do research! I never liked wars and I never will..people shall die a natural death-when our time come! Once more, sorry about your loss and all the best! Thank you!
The main problem really is that the US continues to kidnap people around the world... they call it rendition.
They also finance the Pakistani ISI which created and continues to support the Taleban.
The real problem is that when they operate together to fight terrorism it will be only against those the US considers terrorists.
Killers of children in schools and theatres and hospitals will be ignored or even given asylum, while Russian citizens will be kidnapped and illegally sent to the US to face trial on charges that are created in the US.
Should have been an excellent opportunity for the Russian aircraft to check the signature of the US F-22s on their IRST sensors. (Both the Flanker and Foxhound have such sensors BTW).

Russia jets a not outdated and they are much better than what West have! This is a true proven fact ! Also,\when Korea war was happening Russian MIG 15 complete clear skies from Usa planes-not one was able to flight-not one! Russians pilots bet among themselfs where Usa planes will be fallen(pin point a peace of land like beach etc) and yet Usa propaganda at home (as today) said that their planes are so advance that they can play kids games with others!One Russia pilot alone with "outdated"plane shot down 178 "advance"(the best in the world)Usa jets over Korea! Up to 5000 Usa pilots finish in Siberia and never return-DO RESEARCH! Russians are genious people in Millitary hardware.Unlike West, Russians true history keep their lips close but wnen the time come for to be or not to be-history facts proved-there never was a biggest superpower in human history as Russia!Most of Western media always keep their population in dark about true facts - not only in millitary but in all other aspects of lifes around the world....Nevertheles s, I welcome this cooperation-terroris m will become no.1(is) danger for all of us in future. Thank you!
Are you saying that Russian Pilots and Soldiers fought Americans in Korea? This is BREAKING news because The Soviet Union NEVER admitted to this even though the world knew. Kinda of like Russian Invasion of Georgia. Russia is all upset about American advisors and NO fighting men! WOW! I am going to forward this to my brother as our dad was KILLEDV by your Russians!
st.lucia is a country very close too america and we know america can never beat the russian's in a war end of quot......they say the russians have outdated weapons false...they have the most powerful bomb in the world name the ss.satan and a whole lots more,america has use it's television power to convince the world that russia is weak but they know the truth,go back two years ago when america told gorgia that they were with them and would defend tthem but when the russians came bombing and splitting them in two where was america to help them pls don't forget that,america has always been scared of the russians and no country has defeat the russians in a war not even hitla...no matter how much moeny they spend on their military the russian weapons are the best in quality and reliabilty thats the fact they scared of the russians.
I welcome this cooperation...In my opinion natural things for me will be when Everithing from Canada to far East in Russia become one camp.. World trend clearly show that others to (Asia,Africa etc.) move in this direction. China will absorb all Asia (include Japan) in future and become the most powerful state by all means...Looking at all of this Usa will be in grave danger in future and only frienship will Russia will be a garant of balance power in the world! For future Usa security, Russia is a key state! Usa (I think) start to realise and to see this future big picture and try somehow to come close to Russia. This joint exercises are good sign and I hope more is to come! By the way I agree with your comment Alex...Russia jets a not outdated and they are much better than what West have! This is a true proven fact ! Also,\when Korea war was happening Russian MIG 15 complete clear skies from Usa planes-not one was able to flight-not one!

To: Vladimir. Do you think the WWIII is going to be against North Korea? and perhaps China?
Finally, let's all be friends. Let's fight terrorism together. Russia and USA have the same approach to life -FREEDOM.
Also, who came up with the name "Vigilant Eagle" ??
To all of the conspiracy nuts- no this joint mission was not to see who has what. We both know already who has what and what that aircraft can do.
The point of this mission was to see how we can work effectively tackling a terror threat that worries both nations.This joint military exercise was very important. It's time to stop the Cold War thinking and think about our common enemy - the terrorists. It is vital to Russia, United States & Canada's national security that we work together as a team on this threat.
David .. our "outdated"planes are still a lot better than your updated ones .. lol
Good that the US and Russian jet fighters are working together!! That is in all likelihood their last joint mission.
What I have in mind is a prophecy of Baba Vanga that the WWIII is going to be launched in November 2010. In the remaining two months or so both Air Forces (the US and Russian) will have enough time to analyse what they have learned about the other side during the joint mission. Therefore, from the purely professional point of view this joint exercise was absolutely necessary for both AFs.
russian outdated aircrafts will go down LOL
While the US is in a full swing deploying missiles shield in Turkey or Bulgaria, Russia is naively participating in a joint training exercise with America?!? Wake up Russia, America is not your friend!
Is this some kind of a joke, or America is luring Russia into a trap to analyse the capabilities of Russian aircraft in order to have an advantage for a possible future hostilities. Russia cannot have a close partnership relation with Canada and America for as long as they work together to destroy Russia with hostile NATO encirclement still in the planning.
This is a very important military exercise for Russia, the United States and Canada. It would be great to see the best fighter jets in the world
working together. This is truly a historical event. This is a step forward in cooperative efforts to combat terrorism in the future. I am very
proud of all of the countries participating in the exercise. Thanks President Medvedev, President Obama,and Prime Minister Stephen Harper!
