B-52s Demonstrate Strategic Reach

A B-52H Stratofortress is marshalled to a stop at Barksdale Air Force Base, La., after a 44-hour sortie July 2, 2015. Aircrew members and two B-52s from Barksdale’s 96th Bomb Squadron flew the round-trip mission to Australia where they integrated with Royal Australian Air Force ground forces in the region to conduct an exercise with inert conventional weapons and perform a low approach at RAAF Base Tindal. Long-duration bomber missions ensure aircrews maintain a high state of readiness and proficiency while demonstrating their ability to provide a flexible and always-ready global-strike capability in support of U.S. Strategic Command and geographic combatant commanders.
