USAF B-52 lands in Australia for training
The U.S. and Australia in 2011 agreed on a joint Force Posture Initiative to train together to face threats in the Pacific.
The B-52, assigned to Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, and deployed from Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota, touched down at RAAF. The Air Force has bombers deployed to Guam on a constant rotational basis.
The training mission will include simulated ordnance drops at the Delamere Training Range and a fighter intercept exercise, according to Pacific Air Forces.
