Aviation In Action Updates

Post by AviationInAction »

''Aviation in Action'' or AIA for short, is a team of photographers and writers based in the UK who specialise in all kinds of aviation across Europe and beyond. This thread will contain updates of our reports from events, exercises and organised projects as we publish them.

First up, we have:

US Air Force Tri-Bomber Deployment 2017

Back in June of this year, the United States Air Force deployed examples of all three of their current bombers to RAF Fairford under the Bomber Assurance and Deterrence initiative. US Air Force Global Strike Command positioned a combination of B-1s, B-2s and B-52s to RAF Fairford to take part in various exercises and training operations marking a strong show of force to NATO Allies and other nations in the region.
