"USAF Deploys B52 and B2 Strategic Bombers to UK"
"Three USAF B52s and two B2 bombers have been deployed to RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire in the United Kingdom. Fairford is currently a standby airfield, with no aircraft permanently assigned to it, and is the only US airbase in Europe capable of operating strategic bombers. Its facilities include a long runway with an unrestricted load bearing capacity and two climate controlled hangars specially designed to take B2s.
And this deployment is in response to:
1. The crisis in Ukraine?
2. The crisis in Iraq?
NO WHERE THAT I CAN FIND OR SAW IN THE U.S. MEDIA WAS THIS DEPLOYMENT MENTIONED OR COVERED!
