Story by Capt. Christopher Bowyer-Meeder on 04/04/2019A U.S. Air Force B-52 Stratofortress flew from RAF Fairford, England, to Romania on April 3, 2019, to conduct close air support training at the Cincu Range with Romanian Joint Terminal Attack Controllers.
The U.S. has a strong military-to-military relationship with our NATO ally, Romania. Training opportunities like this enhance our ability to operate together and sharpen the readiness of the NATO alliance.
The B-52 flight also allowed aircrew to conduct theater familiarization and to demonstrate U.S. commitment to allies and partners through the global employment of our military forces. U.S. Strategic Command regularly tests and evaluates the readiness of strategic assets to ensure we are able to honor our security commitments.
The B-52, part of the Bomber Task Force currently deployed to the U.S. European Command area of responsibility, is from the 2nd Bomb Wing, Barksdale Air Force Base, Louisiana.
