Minot AFB B-52s train with Norwegian forces
Two U.S. Air Force B-52 Stratofortress bombers from Minot Air Force Base conducted multi-domain training flights over international waters in the vicinity of the Norwegian Sea on Sept. 2.
According to U.S. Forces in Europe-Air Forces in Africa Command, during the flights, B-52s integrated with Norwegian F-35 and F-16 fighter aircraft as well as Norwegian frigates. Training with NATO allies like Norway enhances the capabilities and readiness of the alliance and strengthens the nation’s shared commitment to global security and stability.
The flight was coordinated in support of U.S. Strategic Command’s Bomber Task Force in Europe, which is a series of missions developed to allow aircrews to train and familiarize themselves with different geographic locations and allies.
