U.S. Air Force ends deployment of B-52 bombers in Guam

Monday’s Sankei front-paged a report saying that the U.S. Air Force announced on April 17 that it will no longer base strategic bombers outside of the continental United States. The five B-52 strategic bombers deployed at Andersen Air Force Base in Guam were relocated to Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota on April 16. The paper wrote that the Air Force explained that the move is part of its “dynamic force employment” concept, under which the Air Force will build interoperability with allies and partners of the United States and bolster its collective ability to be operationally unpredictable. The Air Force also said that U.S. strategic bombers will continue to operate in the Indo-Pacific, including Guam, at the timing and tempo of its choosing.
