Three strategic bomber B-52H Stratofortress, capable of carrying nuclear cruise missiles and aerial bombs, were transferred by the United States to Europe and landed in the United Kingdom at the forward US air base Fenford. This is reported by Western monitoring resources.


The US has transferred strategic bombers B-52H to Europe


One of the bomber with a tail number 60-0061 before arriving in the UK flew along the Russian western borders. B-52H flew from the Barksdale airbase, located in the US state of Louisiana, made a transatlantic flight to the coast of Europe, after which, passing near Scotland, headed for German airspace to the Baltic. Above the Baltic Sea, a bomber traveled along the Polish coast towards the sea border of the Kaliningrad region, approaching it at 100 km. Within a few minutes the plane was in the zone of the Russian air defense systems, which were closely watching him.

According to the available information, the bombers were transferred to Europe to participate in the planned NATO exercises in Georgia "NATO-GEO EX19". However, there is no official confirmation of this information. In the near future, several more B-52H will arrive at Fenford base. It is expected that their total number will be eight units.

Fenford Air Base in the UK is used by the United States as a forward base for the deployment of its bombers in Europe. It was from this airbase that B-52 took off, bombing Yugoslavia and Iraq.

      Approach to the Kaliningrad region at a distance of 100km. - This is a cheap fluttering of wings and showing your vassals that they are still eagles, though with chicken feathers.

      Actually, Fairford (in the article an error in the name) has been an American airfield of strategic jumpers in Great Britain since time immemorial. There, even shops trade for dollars, not pounds. And there the B-52 is constantly on duty from the Barksdale air base (Shreveport, Louisiana), only the number changes periodically. Now they have teachings and have thrown a bit more, so what’s supernatural, why make a fuss. Routine .... Our strategists also fly along the borders of a potential enemy.
      And I had to go to Fairford in '94, to Barksdale in '92. Eh, youth ....

      Nope. These are people in black who flew in - now May, for the failure of Brexit, will be packed and taken out with the Skripals to Mongolia, and with those who saw the evacuation operation, they will take a group photo "for memory"

          +++++++++++++++++ Allies flew on one wing and you were sheltered or was it a friendly visit of Russian bombers to the enemy camp? I'm sorry to joke. I can imagine what impressions you got from that trip. I saw it with my own eyes colleagues in the art of bombing. It turned out that ordinary guys probably. I imagine how you kept the mark of a Russian pilot .... even though we were ruled by Alkash, but we knew the service and Soviet regulations in the troops. Especially in the camp of the enemy.

        Well .. if you don’t look at the purpose of the aircraft and its basing, it’s a usual flyby along our borders to hide tasks. If you move closer along the borders then you need to change the air defense so that there is a complete interception and destruction of the target within ten km.

          then you need to change air defense,

        because they don’t throw bombs.

        bombs can now be planned for 100 km, as an example of the state GBU-39 --110 km ... request

    What is surprising is not the insolence of partners, but the fact that these flying minerals have been capable of successful transatlantic flights for so many years.

    Have you flown up to the borders by 100 km? A cheap trick is to suddenly check "these Russians will switch to air defense combat mode."

    What, however, is his powerful mechanization of the wing from such an angle as in the photo. It's because he flaps so flirting to take off the ground. The video is even more interesting, there parts of the wing dangle like rags from the oncoming stream.

    Something is already too serious. If in the near future we will also observe the pulling of destroyers to our waters, then a preemptive nuclear strike must be launched on the United States.

    They raised a howl or was it our media presented everything like that. For decades, ours have been flying at their borders, they are at ours. And without howling, it did, and then suddenly howl? The crews "on the spot" study the theater of operations, where they will have to act if something happens. As old as the world ...

    People say that at an altitude of 7-8 km, such a fool can be seen visually (camera s-125) starting at 300 km., Though in the morning, about 10 hours. Who will say that cameras are installed on the s-300-400's?
