This is great imagery of a B-52 Stratofortress training with U.S. Air Force F-15Cs and Royal Moroccan Air Force F-16s during Exercise African Lion on April 20, 2018. Various units from the U.S. Armed Forces will conduct multilateral and stability operations training with units from the Royal Moroccan Armed Forces in the Kingdom of Morocco. This combined multilateral exercise is designed to improve interoperability and mutual understanding of each nation’s tactics, techniques and procedures while demonstrating the strong bond between the nation’s militaries.

B-2

The B-2 Spirit is a multi-role bomber capable of delivering both conventional and nuclear munitions. A dramatic leap forward in technology, the bomber represents a major milestone in the U.S. bomber modernization program. The B-2 brings massive firepower to bear, in a short time, anywhere on the globe through previously impenetrable defenses.

It has been little more than a week and a half since an Air Force Global Strike Command B-1 Lancer carried out its strike in Syria; however, this article gives an in-depth account of the power this bomber brings to bear. #airpower

“With the destruction these aircraft can bring to bear, just the mere presence of them is enough to change the enemy’s mind.”

This video perfectly sums up the awesome capabilities of our strategic bombers to include the B-1 Lancer, B-2 Spirit and the B-52 Stratofortress.

Our B-52 #Airmen from Minot Air Force Base have done a great job in the U.S. Central Command AOR. So much so that they broke a record that’s been on the books for more than 40 years. In short, they launched their 400th consecutive mission without a maintenance-related delay. Check out the article to learn more about their great work and how their efforts greatly affected the fight against ISIS.

Water survival training is essential for our bomber #Airmen. These photos show the rigors associated with such training, which in this case is being carried out by members of the 393rd Bomb Squadron at Whiteman Air Force Base.

This is a quick look into one of our Air Force Global Strike Command maintenance squadrons at Minot Air Force Base.

Veterans in Blue 2017 - Jerry Owens

Jerry Owens understands service. After retiring from the United States Air Force as a staff sergeant and serving with the Dallas Police Department for 24 1/2 years, Owens continues to serve his community and his fellow veterans by training dogs for Patriot Paws Service Dogs, a company that trains and provides service dogs to disabled veterans, people with disabilities and those suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder to help restore their physical and emotional independence. Owens began his military career May 7, 1968. With his draft number approaching, he decided to enlist in the Air Force. His first duty station was Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, where he was selected to become a security police Airman. During his career, Owens provided flightline security for KC-135s and B-52s, patrolled, worked gates, and eventually became a military working dog handler. Owens was stationed in Korea, Japan, and the Philippines. He said working wth K-9s was the job he enjoyed most. “One of my best memories was working [with] a bomb dog named Leon,” Owens said. “I had him during one of my courses to qualify as a working dog handler, and he could find anything no matter where they hid items.” Joint Base San Antonio-----------------------------------�Our 2017 Veterans in Blue program showcases 38 stories of service by Air Force veterans. Many of the Veterans selected have continued their service by leading in businesses and in their communities. Through the Veterans In Blue project, these service members share their personal stories of how the Air Force has made a difference in their lives.To read about all the 2017 Veterans in Blue go here: http://www.veterans-in-blue.af.mil/

#ICYMI. Capt Julien Adams a B-1 weapon systems officer from Ellsworth AFB and Capt Daniel Adams a B-52 weapon systems officer from Minot Air Force Base are brothers that have many similarities. Not only are they twin brothers but they are bomber brothers. Check out their story!

Bomber brothers: taking the (atomic) Adams family to a new height

Capt. Julien and Daniel Adams have a lot in common. They both have dark, short-cropped hair, love Korean food, and are alumni of the same university; however, the similarities don't stop there. In fact, if surrounded by people who didn't know them very well, the two could easily swap places for the day with nobody being the wiser - a fun perk of having an identical twin.In the Air Force, they are barely even separated by the airframes they fly on - bomber jets.Julien is a B-1 Lancer weapon systems officer assigned to the 34th Bomb Squadron at Ellsworth Air Force Base, South Dakota, while Daniel is a B-52 Stratofortress weapon systems officer assigned to the 69th BS at Minot AFB, North Dakota.For the full story, visit our website.
