Are Afganistan, Iraq and Syria is not enough?


U.S. B-2 Spirit stealth bombers are in Europe for joint training.

Airmen from the 509th Bomb Wing at Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, arrived this week at RAF Fairford, England, for "theater integration and flying training" operations, U.S. European Command said in a news release Tuesday.

    Those are impressive looking planes. I drove past Whiteman about three years ago while some B-2s were taking off and landing.

    Thanks!
    "European theater" - such phrases, like in most wargames, sounds kinda terrifying for me.

    @armatus, @sigg3 is correct. This will be training. The main body of which will be across the rest of Europe. It happens all the time.

    This is a NATO exercise. Russia has their own.

    This year's exercise seems to already be affected by the corona virus. There's a whole load of soldiers in quarantine :)
