B-52s rotate in the Indo-Pacific

Pacific Air Forces Public Affairs

Two B-52 Stratofortress bombers from the 69th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron, deployed from Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota, land July 12, 2019, at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam. A new rotation of aircrews, maintenance personnel and aircraft assigned to the 69th EBS arrived on Guam to replace the 23rd EBS in support of the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command’s continuous bomber presence mission. Since March 2004, Andersen has hosted the bomber mission designed to enhance regional security and provide reassurance to allies and partners that the United States is capable of defending its national security interests in the Indo-Pacific region. The Airmen arriving from the 69th EBS will be on Guam to conduct CBP operations and training.
