B-52 Stratofortress aircraft from the 5th Bomb Wing, Minot AFB, North Dakota conducted a series of integration flights connecting with Romania, Greece, and Italy, March 7, 2022.

The B-52 aircraft took off from RAF Fairford and flew over central Europe to meet up with Romanian Joint Terminal Attack Controllers, this integration provided crucial Close Air Support training.

Before returning to base the B-52 aircraft integrated with Italian and Greek aircrafts. The purpose of these integrations was to practice bilateral operations and bomber aircraft intercept procedures.

Given the inherent speed, flexibility, and range of strategic bombers, Bomber Task Force missions highlight U.S. capabilities and commitment to work closely with our Allies and partners.
