A pair of USAF Boeing B-52Hs (reg. 60-0044, 61-0018, callsign NOBLE) have departed at 10:13 a.m. from RAF Fairford.
After initially heading north, the two BUFF’s then moved to southern Germany. They have orbited over US Army Garrison Grafenwoehr and then headed towards Romania.
This is the first time the USAF has deployed B-52Hs over Eastern Europe since the start of the Russian invasion in Ukraine.
