Spectators thrill to the sight of B-52 bombers launching and recovering at RAF Fairford.

On Monday, May 20, 2024, two U.S. Air Force B-52 Stratofortress bombers from the 5th Bomb Wing at Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota, touched down at RAF Fairford in the U.K. for a routine bomber task force deployment.

Later in the week, two more B-52 bombers arrived, one on Wednesday and another on Thursday, bringing the total number of Stratofortress bombers assigned to the 69th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron, under Bomber Task Force Europe 24-3, to four.

As usual, U.S. Air Force personnel and aircraft of the BTF are working with NATO Allies and other international partners to synchronize capabilities and reinforce security commitments within the U.S. European Command’s area of responsibility. The B-52s have already conducted missions in the Baltics, Eastern Europe, and North Africa, similar to previous deployments.

Some of these missions could be tracked online using flight tracking websites.
