The jet arrived from Barksdale Air Force Base, Louisiana and is in the U.K. as part of the Air Force’s bomber task force operations. Such operations are routinely conducted to demonstrate the United States’ commitment to allies and partners in the region and enhance readiness to respond to any contingencies around the globe. They also provide opportunities to work with allies and partners in the region. (U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt. Ted Daigle)
