Minot AFB B-52s in Guam in support of Bomber Task Force
ANDERSEN AIR FORCE BASE, Guam – A group of U.S. Air Force B-52 Stratofortresses, airmen and support equipment from Minot Air Force Base deployed last week to the Indo-Pacific region in support of Pacific Air Forces’ Bomber Task Force.
The Bomber Task Force demonstrates continued U.S. commitment to allies and partners in the Indo-Pacific region, as well as the U.S. Air Force Global Strike Command’s ability to provide strategic deterrence anytime, anywhere, according to Andersen AFB and Pacific Air Forces.
The deployment is also in support of training efforts with allies and partners during Talisman Saber 2021, a training exercise with the Australian Defence Force. The exercise enhances interoperability with U.S. allies and partners and strengthens the collective ability to support a free and open Indo-Pacific.
More than 17,000 troops from both U.S. and Australia are participating in the exercise. The exercise runs until July 31, according to Naval Technology.Com website.
