That's not impossible, the cruise missiles are subsonic and probably should be easily spotted on radar from above, that and their heat signature. They're a little hard to shoot down from the ground though, you don't see them until their almost on you, and zoom past at 600 mph only dozens of meters off the deck. But a supersonic jet fighter should be able to intercept them, especially if they knew where and when they were coming, which the Russians did, thanks to Herr Trumpler practically asking Pooty-Put's permission to act macho.
