NORAD Fighters Conduct Operation Noble Eagle Mission Off The Coast Of Oregon

Posted: Updated:

**North American Aerospace Defense Command Press Release**

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. – Out of an abundance of caution, in coordination with our inter-agency partners, two F-15 fighters under the direction of North American Aerospace Defense Command escorted a commercial airliner designated a track of interest off the coast of northern Oregon at approximately 6:15 p.m. PST this (Thursday) evening. The Boeing 737 was escorted
until it landed without further incident at Seattle International Airport where it was met by local law enforcement officials at approximately 7 p.m. PST.

NORAD's mission – in close collaboration with homeland defense, security, and law enforcement partners – is to prevent air attacks against North America, safeguard the sovereign airspaces of the United States and Canada by responding to unknown, unwanted and unauthorized air activity approaching and operating within these airspaces, and provide aerospace and maritime warning for North America. 



NORAD is the bi-national Canadian and American command that is responsible for the air defense of North America and maritime warning. The command has three subordinate regional headquarters: the Alaskan NORAD Region at Elmendorf Air Force Base, Alaska; the Canadian NORAD Region at Winnipeg, Manitoba; and the Continental NORAD Region at Tyndall Air Force Base, Fla. The command is poised both tactically and strategically in our nation's capital to provide a multilayered defense to detect, deter and prevent potential threats flying over the airspace of the United States and Canada.
