A formation of three B-52H Stratofortress aircraft, assigned to the 5th Bomb Wing, Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota, depart RAF Fairford, England, to take part in a Bomber Task Force Europe mission over Ukraine on Sep. 4, 2020.
The B-52Hs are escorted by Ukrainian Air Force MiG-29s and Su-27s.
The strategic bomber missions provide theater familiarization for aircrew members and opportunities for U.S. integration with NATO allies and regional partners.
