A B-52 Stratofortress, B-1 Lancer and B-2 Spirit sit next to each other on the flightline at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, Aug.10, 2016. All three of Air Force Global Strike Command's strategic bomber aircraft are simultaneously conducting operations in the U.S. Pacific Command area of operations. The B-1 Lancer arrived at Andersen Aug. 6 to support U.S. Pacific Command’s Continuous Bomber Presence mission and rotate with the B-52s there. In addition, three B-2s arrived in theater to conduct a Bomber Assurance and Deterrence deployment. The CBP and BAAD missions are part of a long-standing history of maintaining a consistent bomber presence in the Indo-Asia-Pacific in order to maintain regional stability.
