The Vigilant Eagle 2014 drills will take place in August and will practice coordination between the Russian armed forces and the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) in the event of a terrorist attack on a passenger airliner, said Lt. Col. Alexander Gordeyev, a spokesman for the Eastern Military District.
