United States Air Force B-52 Bombers arrive in Darwin

A number of United States Air Force (USAF) B-52 Stratofortress Bombers have arrived at RAAF Darwin to participate in Enhanced Air Cooperation.

RAAF Base Darwin is hosting the bombers while they take part in training activities with the Australian Defence Force in designated military airspace near RAAF Base Williamtown until early April.

Enhanced Air Cooperation builds on a broad range of combined air exercises and training activities between the United States and Australia, which regularly involve visits by US military aircraft to Australia.
