US BOMBERS MOVED TO BRITAIN
The US Air Force has sent more of its bombers to Europe, deploying two B-2 stealth aircraft as part of a military exercise. On Sunday they joined three B-52 StratoFortress bombers already deployed in Britain.
All the visiting American aircraft are stationed at RAF Fairford, a British air base west of London.
“This deployment of strategic bombers provides an invaluable opportunity to strengthen and improve interoperability with our allies and partners,” said Adm. Cecil Haney, commander, US Strategic Command in a USAF statement.
The B-2 bombers are normally stationed at Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri.
