USAF gör en styrkedemonstration med bombflygplan

In the last week, the Air Force has flown all three of its bomber aircraft on multiple long-range missions to Europe, from their home bases in the United States.

The flights were also partly intended to show the coronavirus pandemic and ensuing complications have not impaired the Air Force’s ability to carry out complicated, simultaneous missions.
 

On Monday, a B-1B Lancer from the 28th Bomb Wing at Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota flew a long-range strategic Bomber Task Force mission to Europe, U.S. Air Forces in Europe-Air Fores Africa said in a release. That was the wing’s second such flight in less than a week — the 28th also flew two Lancers to the Baltic region on May 5, on a mission that included training with the Danish air force.

And on Thursday, two B-2 Spirit bombers from Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri, two B-52H Stratofortresses from Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota, and two B-52s from Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana flew to the U.S. European Command and U.S. Indo-Pacific Command geographic areas of responsibility, U.S. Strategic Command said in another release Monday.

De övar bombanfall mot Europa alltså, det känns ju tryggt.

Nu har nog aldrig G Sandön varit nåt primärt anfallsmål i sammanhanget, men intressant var ju när WP nån gång under kalla krigets kallaste dagar övade landstigning med bl a enheter från nuvarande NATO-länder  (läs Polen och Tyskland) varvid man utgick med flottan norrut från just Polen, och på en punkt mellan Gotland och Ösel (har jag för mig) la in en kontrakurs mot Gotland mot Ösel varpå man landsatte trupperna där (sic!). Var det månne "ZAPAD 81"? Men nu kanske vi har lämnat ämnet...

Nu tror jag väl iofs att Amerikanerna har gjort ännu mindre av saken... :tveka:

Fast det är väl kanske naturligt om man även övat mindre.
