Here is the plan - if the aircraft is controlled by terrorists, blow it out of the sky over a forest. Lets keep it real.

Yeah! Lets keep it real. A burning aircraft crashing in a forest is great. Good thinking. Duh!

if they did that on 911 we would have had three or four downed aircraft rather than downed buildings. maybe the one in pennsylvania was shot down, over a forest.

9/11 was a complete surprise without warning. Like the japenese attack on Perl Harbor. It happened quick. All planes were destroyed by jihadists into their targets. With the exception of the one in Pennsylvania, which had a target of the White House and was destroyed prior to reaching it's target by those heroic passengers.

We have interceptor air security. When orders are given, our aircraft must take quick action. Many times you can not select your field of fire. You shoot quickly at the flying target to stop it from reching it's target..

Any cooperation between the USA and Russia is good. There is no reason we cannot be friends or competitors in the marketplace, not enemies.

japenese?
Perl Harbor?
reching?

What an illiterate moron.

btw: It was no surprise what happened on 9/11 as the Islamists have been at it for decades. Was the Iran/hostage crisis a surprise? Was the Marine barracks in Beirut being hit? Was the USS Cole? In fact 9/11 was not even their first attack on the WTC.

But this "Small Minded Idiot" has never met a jihadi he was not an apologist for.

If the scenario is of an airliner hijacking though under what circumstances would it require a joint USA/Russian response? I would think on this particular issue...

I guess those Russian airforce bombers that test our response by flying close to the borders of Canada and the USA are looking for skyjackers.

Entering anthers air space with pursuit in progress, I think. Just learning to communicate is worth the effort.

I think the USA is prepared to defend it's own airspace. If the hijacked jet is coming out of a USA airport into internation air space, the USA interceptors may be relieved by Canadian forces, and subsequently by Russian aircraft, and vice-versa. Who knows at this point as I am sure such plans are secret. But, I agree Ken, communication is important and it is good to see such cooperation. But, with the recent Bear flights near Canada again, it makes you wonder what is the mindset of those Russians.

If, under such an agreement it would allow a Russian pursuit aircraft to enter our air-space, than something is wrong with this picture.
