21
Three US strategic bomber B-52H on the eve of the air base in the United States were transferred to the UK. In particular, two US Air Force bombers landed at the Fairford military airbase, and the third "strategist" - at Mildenhall airfield. It is reported that the third bomber was forced to be sent to the alternate aerodrome due to deteriorating weather conditions in the Fairford area.


Airplanes landed on airplanes in Britain are included in the 5-e bomber wing of the US Air Force. The airfield of this aviation connection is located in the state of North Dakota - in the city of Minot.

Three strategic bomber B-52H transferred from the USA to Britain


The Pentagon does not comment on the reasons that prompted the transfer of its strategic bombers to Europe.

For reference: the heavy ultra-long strategic bombers B-52 were produced in the United States from 1952 to 1962 years.
Start of operation in the US Air Force - 1955 year. Officially, the United States Air Force currently has more than 60 of such aircraft. In the United States adopted a program to modernize these bombers. Before 2030, it is planned to spend over these 11 billion dollars for these needs.

    Well, and who is escalating the situation here, the question is redundant. It is simply necessary in Cuba (of course, with the permission of the Cuban authorities) to form a military base and also then without comment.

      Our Tu-95 flew across Southeast Asia, and even with visits to friendly countries, business. It’s necessary to track, but to react emotionally is completely useless

      Earlier, the Tu-160 (October 31, 2013) visited Venezuela and Nicaragua. See above - "Well, who is escalating the situation here, the question is redundant"

      You are an adult, not a stupid person. You are not fond of computer toys. How is such a war possible if there is a "Guaranteed Mutual Destruction" by the forces of the Nuclear Triad

      They have in the summer of 18 anaconda - NATO teachings. How they are going to fight against us, we know, even with the fat Eun, they got it wrong, what can we say about us.
      And the islands will sink if they accidentally drop something different from the bomber, as usual.

      But there were (and now is) the newspaper "Red Star" and the magazine "Soviet Warrior" (color, semi-gloss). And, of course, the thick journal Foreign Military Review. Just there was no discussion "in public" of a huge amount of news. yes

        Probably. The more remains of the B-52 fly, the more you need to disassemble the remaining air junk on the ground for spare parts. Yes, and the likelihood of an accident in old aircraft increases every year.

    The Pentagon does not give comments
    The Pentagon has no reason to comment on this transfer. They have repeatedly stated the threat posed by Russia to the Baltic states and Europe, and American citizens are completely not concerned about the actions of the military. Therefore, they act openly, brazenly and without explanation.

    Well, not all of us boast of our Swans and Bears.
    So the Americans decided Europe to remind their power.
