Androsov said the flight -- the first of its type since the end of the Cold War -- was intended as a demonstration of Russia's resurgent military power.


Guam hosts a large U.S. military base.


Androsov said Russian crew smiled at the U.S. fighter pilots that scrambled to intercept them.


He said the Guam flight was part of a three-day military exercise.
