US and Russia To Conduct Joint Hijacking Exercise Over Pacific

Aircraft and officers from Russia and the North American Aerospace Defense Command will track an executive-style civilian jet playing the role of a hijacked jet across the Pacific next week in a first-of-its-kind exercise testing their joint response to a potential international hijacking.

The goal of the exercise is to test how well the two forces can hand off responsibility for the “hijacked” plane. The three-day exercise is scheduled to start Sunday in Alaska.
