B-52's demonstrate power projection in the Pacific
A U.S. Air Force B-52 Stratofortress bomber taxis on the runway April 14, 2016, at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam. The U.S. Air Force B-52 Stratofortress bomber and crews just returned from Clark Air Base, Philippines, where they supported Exercise Balikatan 16. Exercises like BK 16 help maintain a high level of readiness, enhance military-to-military relations, and combined combat capabilities. The U.S. Pacific Command has maintained a rotational strategic bomber presence in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region for more than a decade. This presence deters potential adversaries and provides reassurance to allies and partners that the U.S. is capable to defend its national security interests in the theater.
